I was turned onto the Blue Steel Caddis by a buddy of mine who guides for Mark. Its unbelievable how effective that pattern is and its pretty simple to tie. Props to Mark for offering some of the best tutorials Ive found on the web.

The emerald shiner is an actual bait fish in the great lakes. It's one of the main things the steelhead feed on while in the lake.

And, it does have a white belly and green-olive back, but the color is somewhat iridescent above the lateral line, so flashy colors mixed into the dark layer of hair are a bonus. Many emeralds appear all white, the back coloring being somewhat muted on a lot of specimens.

I would say, tie a two-tone streamer, with dark over light, but stay bright on the dark part and even consider adding some sparse falshy material between the layers or embedded in the darker top portion. Keep the dark portion to less than half the bulk. Size 10 is big enough, but you could go bigger in murky water or in the surf.

Here's my boxes. Clear boxes have the same amount of flies on the other side in different colors. Estimating over 800 flies there. I should be ready...
