The Umpqua steelhead fly pattern. The old Rogue River fly is similar in coloration. Add jungle cock eyes and you can add Special to either name.

"The Rogue River Special"

The Rogue River Special just as the Juicy Bug was often tied on a small double hook. A jungle cock eye was usually added to both sides of the wing. Cast directly downstream, they were hung in the current and twitched.

Umpqua Special

Umpqua Special. Without the jungle cock, simply called The Umpqua.
