Smokehouse Spade was designed and tied by the late Scotty Howell for Salmonfly.Net.
Scotty's Notes: This original fly was inspired by the sights and colors of Big Al's Texas BBQ in Bothell WA. Although tied on a whim, it proved to be an effective dark day and transition pattern for Summer steelhead and Coho.
