    Anyone have a recipe for a "Beats Me"? I hear it works well on our rivers for steelhead. Thanks.

    This is the first I've heard of it. Where are you from? Is it a local favorite?

    I'm from all the way down there in Pullman Wa. Its supposed to be a Clearwater River fly. So that's about all I know.

    ht75,

    You might contact Mike at Red Shed Fly Shop in Peck, Idaho. If anyone knows the Clearwater Flies, it's Mike. www.redshedflyshop.com

    Hey Sloan,

    I was hitting Google today and found a photo and recipe for the fly. Can't get the URL to work though when I type it here. On Google type in Beats Me Fly.

    Hope this helps.
