This is the second in the series of Syd Glasso flies tied by Washington Contributing Fly Tyer, Stu Farnham. You can see more of Stu's flies at The Flies of Stu Farnham. See also the Sol Duc and see his notes about the Sol Duc Dark below.

Stu's Notes: Most of the named steelhead patterns that Syd Glasso left us are slight variations of each other. Across the entire set of patterns, however, are variations for most conditions from low, clear water to high, off-color spate. The Sol Duc Dark, as its name suggests, is a variation of the Sol Duc, with the red feathers from the body of the golden pheasant making up the wing and tail.
