Tied by: Eunan Hendron
Originated by: Eunan Hendron

Hook: Mike Martinek Carrie Stevens Rangeley streamer hook #2 8xl
Thread: White
Body: White floss
Rib : Flat blue tinsel
Throat/Belly: Black goose shoulder 4-5 slips, left and right
Wing: Blue hackle flanked by pink hackle flanked by grey hackle
Shoulder: Jungle cock body feather
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: White

Notes: Eunan notes his inspiration came from seeing other small fish imitations such as brook and brown trout with little regard to the chrome steelhead. His pattern brings influence from traditional steelhead pink and blue, Chum Candy if you will, combined with the natural colors found on small Oncorhynchus mykiss. Eunan included the jungle cock shoulder to provide a lateral line and a focal point predators could hone in on.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
