Here is another wee pattern that I'm sure your Steelhead will gulp down in an instant! You can always include it with the other fish patterns I sent, the only difference with materials used in this one was Olive Antron Body Wool instead of White. It is just a matter of one's artistry to do the colouring. Even the bigger brown trout here gulp it down! They are very easy to make.
