Syd Glasso Brown Heron tied in hand
(basically an Orange Heron body but with a bronze mallard wing)
This completes my foray into steelhead wetflies for the meantime.

It's always a bit fun researching Glasso's flies online. He tied variants of his patterns, substituted materials from time to time, and also tied variants at the request of friends.
I enjoyed reading Russ's (@flytyer) take on Glasso's flies here on Speypages (such a wealth of info - worth a tyer's time to search for @flytyer's posts).
Also derived inspiration from @flytie09 and @dahlquistsean on the Gold Heron and the Sol Duc Spey respectively.
Cheers and Blessings,
