Some of the best moments you can have while fishing steelhead is feeling the grab when swinging flies in steely waters. Try tying this one and get ready for a steelhead attempting to rip that fly rod out of your hands! There are many ways to dress the green but skunk. Some tyers like to use sparse materials and in clear spring time conditions that may be appropriate. But most anglers from Montana will be fishing Idaho Rivers like the Clearwater or Salmon Rivers where conditions are cold and when the water isn’t super clear. After a rain storm or late winter thaw the water is silty and you’ll want a fly that will stand out. Its tough to decide if I should be using a dark fly, small fly, bright fly or big fly and the green Butt skunk has it all. A small bright spot, white spot, a dash of read and a big black nymph like profile – could this be the perfect winter fly for all conditions? Maybe. But I think it is certainly worth fishing and here’s how to tie it:
Steps 1 – 3
Step 5 – 7
This fly works great as a winter pattern, its easy to tie and easy to fish – give it a try!
