Tony Torrence demonstrates how to tie one of our very favorite summer steelhead flies. The Silvenator is a versatile tube fly pattern that sinks when you need it to, but swings beautifully as well. Black and blue combos, black and orange as well as others are very effective summer and winter steelhead flies.
