Sharp Steelie fly

Very simple fly pattern:

Hook: TMC/Targus 2457 size 6 and 8
Tail: 4 strand ultra floss
Body: 4 strand ultra floss
Collar: Natural Grizzly Saddle Hackle

Also effective in olive green and red - going to try
a couple new colors this summer:

I'm a little new to fly tying. In you materials list you don't have thread listed. Do you use thread in this fly or do you use the floss to tie off the hackle?

Backer51 - I use the floss to secure the collar and as
the head. Whip finish with 5 or 6 turns and touch off
with a dab of head cement. They are actually very
durable.
