Steelhead Fly of the week – Grease Liner

The Originator of this fly, Harry Lemire created it in 1962. And since that time it has been considered a very important dry fly in the Pacific Northwest not only for its fish catching ability but also as a development in fly tying. The clipped deer hair head has been used on many other flies since its introduction. Among them is Al Troth’s elk hair cadis, probably the most popular cadis imitation ever made.

Hook: Up eye salmon hook.
Tail: Fine deer body hair.
Body: Dark grayish tan to black fur.
Throat: A sparse beard of Grizzly hackle.
Wing: Dark deer body hair extending only to the end of the dubbing, clipped to leave a tuft of butt ends.

Thumbs up

I've gotten yanked right off my rock skating one of these on a crisp fall day on the river that flows through Harry's home town, it's a pattern that has a lot of meaning to me and I tie it in a variety of body colors with a sedge orange gold fiber blended dubbing being my favorite.
