This week’s Throw Back Thursday Fly is Art Lingren’s Green-Butt Black steelhead fly.
Lingren developed this fly around 1983. He is well-known in the steelhead community and knowledgeable about British Columbia fly fishing, which is his home.
The link below is from the Wet Fly Swing podcast from February 2021 if you’d like to hear Art talk about steelhead.
I pulled out a few guinea feathers to tie the fly and after completing it, noticed they were a little muted. Next time, I’ll dig a little deeper to locate more pronounced black and white feathers!
