This is a fly of my design but I have to include it. The Halo just gets it done for steelhead in late summer and fall when the rivers run clear and the steelhead have been in fresh water for a while. The fly was designed to have a “buggy” appeal to those steelhead that have been in the river long enough to start going back to their trouty ways. Ninety-percent of the time you’ll find me fishing the Halo on a floating line, but it has had some great days for me on sink-tips as well. I fish the Halo in conjunction with its brother, the Last Light, preferring the Last Light in low light situations first thing in the morning and last light of the evening.
