Air BC


Name Air BC
Category Steelhead Surface Fly
Tail White calf tail
Body Deer body hair dyed orange, spun and clipped to shape
Side Wings Unclipped tufts of the orange body hair
Wing White calf tail

Air BC is one of the patterns that can be found in  Dick Stewart and Farrow Allen's fine book, Flies for Steelhead and other fly tying publications.  I show it here as an example of the type of variation that can be found in bomber flies. To see more flies in the series,  and to read more about this fly, return to Favorite Surface Flies for Steelhead.
