Fly of the Week
Well I have no idea if there's a name for these flies yet but probably (no I did not invent it). This is by far the nicest looking worm fly I've fished for Steelhead. The polar chenille body wrapped around fire line forms an incredible glowing worm like presence in the water. I use Cotter pins for the head of the fly with groovy eyes which combined gives this fly the weight to be in the zone when fishing cold water for winter fish! The tail is Craft fur which is very life-like in the water, maybe more than marabou tied on a Gamagatsu octopus style #2 hook. I took this picture on my reel which is almost 4inches in diameter to display the length of the flies. Collar is just Shlappen for the final touch of what I would call a work horse flie, not fancy or complicated, but very effective in getting the job done!Please leave a comment for further questions about this pattern:)
