It is nice to see some folks still tie and fish a few of the old classics. I have found that many of them work very well for our west coast steelhead. You should not encounter any real problems with tying it. The hardest part will be getting the teal to lay properly on top of the wing. A tip for doing this easily is to use a section of teal (or pintail or gadwall) that is twice as wide as needed, fold it in half, and tie the folded teal on top of the G.P. tail main wing as a roof. This is far easier than trying to tie a piece of teal in on each side, and the result is the same.
