Flies arrived today. Good stuff. Following is a description of my fly:

Same Thing Murray:

Hook: several, but this is TMC 7989 low water
Tag: silver tinsel
Tail: red hackle fibers
Body: green floss over silver tinsel, followed by peacock herl
Underwing: lime green crystal flash
Wing: black squirrel or kid goat
Hackle: black
Head: red floss, followed by black ostrich herl, followed by black thread

I often use steelhead flies for Atlantic salmon and the reverse. This is an Atlantic
salmon fly I've used successfully for summer steelhead.
