Tom Larimer’s Green Butt Purple Fly Tying Video

This bright pattern is another brilliant creation from the vise of Tom Larimer.  Though the tried and true Green Butt Purple is a relatively new pattern to me, this little gem has earned a place in my Summer Steelhead box.  Many things dictate size choice, but I usually fish a #5.  No big tales to tell, let’s just say, it catches fish!   A mono leader, your favorite dry line, and you are off to the races!  As I understand an absolute must for the Deschutes!
