This collection of the Steelhead Muddler were tied on assignment over the winter. I like this pattern. I might try one as the trailer fly replacing the G.R. Hare’s Ear in my Carpetbagger and Hare’s Ear Rogue River tadem fly setup. It will get down deep in the cold water. As Dec Hogan mentions, with the red gills it qualifies as a minnow…not a grasshopper. Further the steelhead are suppose to “hammer it.” I’ll give it a try.
