Skykomish Dark
Steve Gobin
Hook: Partridge Bartleet Supreme CS10/2 #1.
Rib: medium silver oval tinsel, with fine silver oval tinsel leading by its own width.
Body: rear 1/3 orange uni-floss, front 2/3 red Berlin wool.
Hackle: yellow coque, one side stripped, wound contrary to the rib, and secured by the second rib.
Collar: black coque, one side stripped.
Wing: bronze mallard, tented, vertical style.
Head: red.
Note: A modern Pacific Northwest steelhead pattern. This is usually tied with a very low horizontal style wing, but some people say vertical style has more action in the water. Red dubbing is sometimes used instead of the red Berlin wool, in which case it should be applied using Syd Glasso's split floss technique.
