Scott,

I've fisha very similar pattern and have caught some really nice steelhead on it. Great fly, and one I swing with confidence.

Exceptional nymph.

Wow, that’s about as nice a one I have ever seen.

I like this fly too, and have had decent success with it on Catskill freestones in the fall.

Good looking fly man! CJ

Awesome pattern. Like CJ said, ones of the nicest variants I've seen.
