If you entered the website through the front page, you might have noticed a new photo there. It is of a black bear green butt steelhead pattern tied by yours truly.
It's not perfect -- none of my flies are -- but it is a good representation of a venerable pattern that uses interesting but common material.
The recipe is as follows;
Hook: Mustad S-73 or equilavent to preferred size
Thread: Black thread 6/0 or finer.
Tag and ribbing: Silver oval tinsel to match
Butt: green floss (I used neon green monocord in this case because I liked how it stood out.)
Body: Black floss
Hackle: black saddle hackle
Wing: Black bear hair.
