Black and Red have long been a proven steelhead color combo.
Crandall's Steelhead Nightmare: This fly I had the hardest time turning over to the commercial side. It is an all time best producer for me and it is hard to beat for both winter, spring, summer and fall fish. Black and red are great colors for steelies add in the white lead eye and there is a definite color contrast and eye grabber for steelies.
