Golden Bear Paw
This is my variation of the Bear Paw, which — for me — fishes better than the original. I have replaced translucent orange Krystal Flash with metallic gold for the tail, wing, and rib. This is a simple fly but steelhead love it.
Hook: TMC 7999 or 2302, sizes 6 and 8
Tail, wing, and rib: Gold Krystal Flash
Body: Small-diameter black chenille
Hackle: Black rooster saddle feather
