The traditional steelhead fly patterns are still as effective as ever. In the day in age with tube flies, hobo flies, and many others new designs, I still find good success swinging the traditional steelhead fly. The Stewart is a great example and in this session I demonstrate how to tie a sparsely dressed low water style fly.
