I had a number of folks ask about a skater pictured in a recent post I did about the Klickitat River. I designed "Fighting Gravity" last season and it has become my number one skater for steelhead. It's been a great producer on the Deschutes and Klickitat. Plus, it's easy to tie and floats like a cork. Hopefully, it'll be available in fly shops next season, until then -here's the recipe.
Hook: 3X long, 2X heavy down eye streamer hook.
Thread: 6/0 Uni-Thread
Tail: Crystal flash
Body: 2mm foam -two pieces tyed Chernobyl Ant style
Collar: Spun deer hair, clipped on the bottom.
Pretty simple... The pic is of my two favorite colors but you can get creative!
