I show you how to tie the Green-Butt Skunk Dark in today’s fly tying tutorial.  The green butt is a classic steelhead fly and today demonstrate the classic hair wing style.

This fly works great swinging for summer steelhead but is an all around killer steelhead color (click here to see a post that describes steelhead fly colors).
