Category: Steelhead Surface Fly
Tail: Rusty brown squirrel tail
Body: Deer body hair dyed brown
Wing: Rusty brown squirrel tail set forward and upright.
*Note: I recommend attaching two hackles for palmering. You only need one, but just in case you inadvertently cut one when trimming the body hair, or break one while winding, you will be happy that you had the second as a backup.
Rusty Bomber is one of the patterns listed in Trey Combs's fine book, Steelhead Fly Fishing as noted in the introduction to the Favorite Surface Flies for Steelhead series on Salmonfly.Net.
