This fly is designed for fishing Steelhead and Brown Trout in Western New York State on the swing.  The style comes from Scandinavian  flies called Temple Dogs as this is the very soft and flowing hair that is used in their patterns.  If you change the colors and keep the basis of construction you will have a very complete selection to use for two hand rods with Skagit and Shooting lines.
