Life really is to short to not catch Steelhead on a fly. Atlantic
Salmon flies and Large wet Steelhead flies are a thing of
beauty and are very enjoyable to create if one has the
time. Due to time constraints, sometimes one has to come
up with simple patterns that are well tied that produce
fish. Not talking "Glo-bugs". When it comes to actually landing
a Steelhead on a fly - in my opinion, the only crappy fly is the
fly that does not catch fish. Have created several that are
in the recycling bin for good. From the artistic side, in my
opinion there is no such thing as "a crappy fly". It's all about
perception and what actually works.

Happy Easter
