Boss – steelhead/salmon fly tying

Published on Nov 30, 2016 by Editor in chief

Small version of the classic Boss. Originally the body material was floss or wool, but chenille is a great alternative if you want a fat profile. I use squirrel hair on small hook and bucktail on large. The hackle can be orange or red… or anything in between (reddish orange).
