I often marvel at the stuff that people come up with for saltwater fishing; Striblue's creations are a great example. And freshwater has some really neat patterns, such as those by Stalcup. Salmon and steelhead flies, though, are by far my favorite to look at, and this pattern is a good reason for that; very well done. Perhaps one day I'll tie some that are half as good! But while the stripers are coming, I'm afraid I'm at the bench tying bunker patterns!
Very nice fly!
