Steelhead in full sun?
Flytyer have you tried these for steelhead in full sun? Might these work during the middle of the day on the Deschutes? Most fly fishermen opt to sit out sun on the water and leave it to the gear guys with spinners and spoons.
Would you have to use sinktips to get into the same area as the spinner guys?
