  Orange and Black Bomber

Name Orange and Black Bomber
Category Steelhead Surface Fly
Tail Black moose hair
Body Black-dyed deer hair, followed by orange, followed by black, spun and clipped, palmered with short black hackle*
Wing Black moose hair

Orange and Black Bomber is one of the patterns Trey Combs's talks about in his fine book, Steelhead Fly Fishing as noted in the introduction to the Favorite Surface Flies for Steelhead series on Salmonfly.Net. To see more flies in the series, return to Favorite Surface Flies for Steelhead.

*Note: I recommend attaching two hackles for palmering. You only need one, but  just in case you inadvertently cut one when trimming the body hair, or break one while winding, you will be happy that you had the second as a backup.
