Yesterday I got an AWESOME steelhead using a fly pattern I learned at GFP! A guy (can' t remember his name. Sorry!) showed me a Gartside Sparrow wet fly he learned from the man himself. I thought it was a neat pattern and made a few myself. When a big fish that showed itself a couple of times refused my egg pattern, I tried that (prompted by the impressive stonefly hatch that was taking place at the time.) Before long a massive, angry fish head was thrashing at the surface!
This made my day when I read it. I love that people learned new flies and are now having fun on the water with them!
