The Santiam Clash is one of a series of flies that are part Atlantic Salmon, part Spey, part Pacific NW Hairwing.  The patterns are inspired by some of the more famous Pacific NW steelhead flies such as the Green Butted Skunk, Skykomish Sunrise, McKenzie Saphire, and others.  This fly was inspired by the Santiam Spectrum by John Shewey.

 A great fly for Sea Run Cutthroats as well!

         Doublehaul,

I'd be happy to make a trade for one of your Sushan Postmasters! If you've got a particular color combination you'd prefer, check the following page for options and get back to me here.

Product Testers are always wanted and I'm always interested in barter and trades.
