    Undertaker Steelhead Fly

    This fly is believed to have originated on the east coast of North America as an Atlantic salmon pattern. With its peacock herl body, black hackle and wing, it is a very dark fly that silhouettes against heavy cloud covered sky and the dying light of late evening. It is well proven as a very good fly for steelhead during periods of glacial silt. It has just enough color at the butt and enough sparkle in the body to elicit curiosity. Small, dark flies are often productive comeback flies for fish that have been moved with larger or brighter colored flies, but which have been proven to be players, but not biters. Carry some size for just such occasions. If the fish still won't move, walk fifty feet upstream and throw a couple of half hitches behind the eye of the hook to keep the fly near the surface.

    One of the best flies used for Atlantic salmon all season long for the last 15 years. Should be a steelhead killer as well.

    I have used this pattern on Atlantic Salmon with great success. I am certain it would work on steelhead as well. Nice fly in the water when not dressed to heavily
