Beginner's Fly Tying Series: Classic Steelhead Flies - the Al's Special

The Al's Special was produced as a winter pattern by Al Knudsen for use on Washington's S rivers and on the Rogue as well. It's tied on a heavy salmon hook to help keep it down. I've always found a fly with some yellow on it to be effective when the water has a green stain to it. Give it a try.
