Steelhead Flies… Morlock’s Steelhead Ammo by Kevin Morlock
I really never had a name for this pattern until tonight when I needed to post it on the site. I have been tying and successfully using this pattern for over ten years. It is simply a shortened Woolly Bugger, a pattern that looks about like anything… bushy and buggy. It is a four material fly and flies off the vise. I tie then in unlimited colors, bright if I’m planning on dirty water or natural for clear conditions.

***Materials listed in tying order
