I would venture it's safe to say that most every steelhead fly tier learned to tie steelhead flies by tying a standard wet fly first. The same could go for the style of fly that many people caught their first steelhead on. I would also be comfortable saying that everyone who has ever ties steelhead wets has experimented in modifications and variations to deem the fly their own pattern. - Dec Hogan

As you spend more time tying you will begin to realize the pursuit of steelhead starts at the vise - Marty Howard
