That fly is KILLER for steelhead! Someone on the S. Santiam breaks a lot of those things off, cause I find them all the time. I started drift fishing them and hooking up! The cutts love them too!

Excellent! The basic beadhead wooly bugger ugly bug is a certifiable summer steelhead killer! Possibly the single best low water summer steelhead bait ever! Ugly bugs tie really well as stoneflies as well! ON A RIVER LIKE THE ROGUE....WITH IT'S HUGE SALMONFLY AND GOLDEN STONE POPULATION!!! Well, you get the idea where I'm going with that!

And there are some really nice cutties and native bows on the Rogue to make things interesting when the steelheadin' is slow!

Nice job!
