  Lemires Irresistable

Name Lemire's Irresistible
Category Steelhead Surface Fly
Tail Fine deer body hair dyed black
Body Deer body hair dyed black, spun and clipped to shape and trimmed flat on the bottom
Wing A single upright tuft of deer body hair dyed black
Hackle Black, trimmed off at the bottom

Lemire's Irresistable can be found in Dick Stewart and Farrow Allen's fine book, Flies for Steelhead. They note that it is important trim the body and hackle across the bottom so that the entire fly will rest on the surface.  To see more flies in the series,  and read more about this fly, return to Favorite Surface Flies for Steelhead.
