NOTES: The fly was transformed from one of the Steelhead patterns, which has been kindly provided by tier Tanya Rooney from Portland, Oregon. This fly was tied as a so called a "halfincher" pattern. It requires a little hook. The long wing and short body saved many salmon lives, because even with a deep take, the hook still very seldom comes into contact with the gills. The same result for Silver salmon as with Violetly Happy and Purple Stranger.
