Nice and simple works, I wonder why I even waste my time on anything over a 4-5 parter steelhead fly any more. Throw some marabou on a hook (4 parter) with some tinsel in different colors and go at it I think is all thats needed.

Thanks for posting a fly pattern when I get my digital figured out to take clearer photos I will post some of mine. Otherwise I will hear the critics on the picture's quality.

Hal, I can relate.:D

Joan's on her 4th digital camera ... and I have my first coming to me now. I've gotten to the point where I know how to turn her's on/off and work the zoom lens ... and that's about it.

Suspect the 'learning curve' is going to be 'straight up.'
