Undertaker Variation – Kevin Hospodar

featured, Fly Patterns, Videos — By on January 10, 2016 9:45 am

A variation of the Undertaker steelhead fly. The Undertaker’s origins are as an Atlantic Salmon fly, but it has been adopted as a proven summer steelhead fly. This version is a bit closer to the Undercoach (Marty Howard’s mash up of the the Undertaker and Steelhead Coachman). I’ve swapped out for a black wing and pheasant rump for the hackle.

Hook – Partridge CS16U/1B sz6
Tag – Small silver oval
Body 1 – chartreuse
Body 2 – Red
Body 3 – Peacock
Rib – Small silver oval
Hackle – Pheasant rump
Wing – Black Bucktail
