Charlie,

Really interesting use of the Coq De Leon hackle. I really like this fly and could see it being very effective for west coast steelhead tied with fl. orange, purple, and hot pink where the greens are used on this one.

Russ,

That’s a great idea. The other colors on this fly are fairly neutral and would work well with just about any color.

Charlie.
