    The Buddug (Welsh name for Boadicea - the fabled Celtic warrior-queen) is a seatrout pattern. Just like the Celts - seatrout love the vivid black, red and silver.

    Very nice, Hans. I think that might make a very good low water steelhead fly as well.

    Steve,

    I think you are quite correct. There is a lot of overlap between steelhead flies and seatrout flies.

    If the collar feather was purple, it would work as a SRC pattern in Oregon. With that in mind, I think I'll tie up a couple.

    Thank you Hans. I don't know why I have not been securing my rib with tinsel, but I will begin using this trick.

    Nice sea trout fly. I will put a few in my box as well.
