These have become my go to fly the last couple of years when fishing for steelhead he last couple of years on the Klamath river. Both the copper or gold head seem to work equally well.

For whatever reason, this simple pattern catches its fair share of Trinity and Klamath steelhead. Scandi line with a longer mono leader.

Always one of my go to swinging flies for the Trinity. Fished on a floating line with a 9-12' leader, this fly can be swung near the surface or cast up stream a bit and allowed to sink into the slots.
