Samurai Steelhead Shank Style Fly Tying Video

The Samurai Steelhead Fly employs proven materials like UV Polar Chenille, Marabou and a Rabbit. The unique aspect of the fly is the “waggling” rabbit strip tied near the front of the fly that stays on top of the fly while the eyes keep the pattern riding correctly. The Samurai is an excellent Steelhead pattern both in Summer and Winter.
