I show you how to tie the flash fly in todays fly tying tutorial video. The flash fly is a great summer or winter steelhead pattern. I tie it sparse and in the traditional steelhead hair wing style.
Take a look below at the video and the fly tying recipe. It is almost entirely flashabou and super easy to tie.

Flash Fly Materials
Hook: Dai-Riki #899 Size #6
Thread: Size 70 Ultra thread

There is no question that purple is one of the best steelhead colors. When you combine purple with a ton of flash you have yourself a special fly.
