Fly tying: Getting ready while conditions are off

With recent flooding conditions due to rain and snowmelt, I’m anticipating a fresh run of steelhead.  Unfortunately, conditions are still too off for my liking, which presents a good opportunity to tie some flies.

I have really taken to this fly pattern and its cousin, the Akroyd.  I look forward to casting these in the water and see what happens.
