This was one of my first steelhead flies and it proved to be very productive in high and dirty conditions. Since it was a magnum sized fly for dirty conditions, the name was a natural. The Dirty Harry was one of my first steelhead flies and it proved to be very productive in high and dirty conditions.

The Dirty Harry was my original Weamer design (elements of a wet fly and a streamer, then fished like either one) and it was designed to fish when rivers were high and running off colour.
