RRW – Steelhead Pattern

While spending a long winter weekend refilling my boxes with next fall on my mind, I was working through the design of a nymph pattern that I could fish confidently in all conditions for summer steelhead.   I was searching for something that inspired a bit more confidence in it’s profile and weight.  I needed a pattern that was more substantial than the skinny little unweighted glass bead head patterns I have been fishing with these past few seasons.  A few variations later, I landed on this pattern that has all of the accoutrement required of a summer steelhead magnet.  It has enough weight to get down and glows like it was birthed in the bowels of Hanford.
