Hey Cutch,

Nice fish and a great looking streamer!!...I tied one up years ago I called the "Orange Crate" it works well in the game too.....Streamers are always the first fly I tie on.

Fred,
Would you post your "Orange Crate Fly" folder here so we can add it to our flies? Or, post a picture and I'll try to tie it,...thanks. :wink:

Hey Cutch: Just caught a 24" Steelhead on your Rainbow Trout. Thanks for sharing your flies. Not many Steelhead available around here. What would a 24" weigh? I'm a Bass fisherman myself but I love this sim and I just might take up fly fishing.

Bob,
If you figure a pound for each inch over 20", that would be close. A 24" Summer Steelhead would weigh approximately 4 lbs. (Winter Steelhead are a slightly heavier) I've found this rule of thumb is pretty close after catching these beautiful fish for over 50 years. :wink:

Bob,
Click on my website below, "Cutch's Camp" and you'll see some nice Summer and Winter Steelhead. (Trout, Salmon, and Bass too) :wink:
