Reduced Signal Light for the Grande Ronde River

Small flies for the Grande Ronde River this time of year. The Signal Light is one of the good patterns. A client had me tie up a couple dozen weighted and unweighted. The weighted flies I identified with a bit of red thread at the head of the fly. I an only surmise that the low, clear water of November requires a smaller pattern for a steelhead hookup. The larger size hook should provide excellent hooking and holding power on a larger, active fish.
