Crazy Charlie Steelhead Edition

Here is a pretty traditional saltwater / flats pattern that has been a must have for casting to bonefish over the last few years. Now it’s been adapted to stalk steelhead. So what’s changed? Not much except that swannundaze is used on the body rather than a pearlescent material. So are steelhead taking these as eggs or shrimp? Either way, It’s worth a try.
