Green Butt Skunk, with flash under-wing
Green Butt Skunk, with flash under-wing, tied by Spirit River. This particular Skunk pattern is so named because it has a white Calf wing over a black (chenille) body. It was a very popular pattern from the 1960's on and here on the North Umpqua it is still extremely popular. Needless to say it works very well. These are considered our Classic Series of Steelhead flies and some are equally effective for Salmon.
All our Steelhead flies are effective and tied to exacting standards, with either calf tail wings, supple Marabou or Saddle Hackle. Many have dubbed bodies that are properly tapered and they also have schlappen Saddle which is soft enough to swim in the currents. All are done on our own chemically sharpened needle point SS-99 steel/salmon hook. All eyes are epoxy coated so they are small and smooth.
