One For The Big River

Recommended Posts

This is a recreation of a pattern my dad and I used on the Thompson River in the late 50's early 60's

his reason behind the bright colors was the Thompson has a darker bottom, this would not go un-noticed.

I have added the polar chenille, not in the original

And it still works today.

I'm curious if the fish eat this as a real "fancy egg". Seems to be just the right color

The river it was tied for has a dark bottom, these colors stand out well there

I'd suspect he's speaking to the Thompson proper, near Spences Bridge. Pretty classic steelhead fly
