I have joined a tying club in Reno and I need something to tie that is simple and will entice steelies to show the group.

Never fished the Trinity yet but plan on fishing it soon.

Any simple patterns come to mind?

Blow their minds man. Two flies. Pound out a big 3-4" marabou tube fly and then afterward, throw in a size 8 hook to tie up a greenbutt skunk. I've often found that non-steelheader types are shocked when they see the contrast around what a steelhead will bite.

From what I have read about the Trinity , steelhead prefer smaller , natural looking flies . The Burlap and Brindle Bug are local favorites from the past , mimicking the large populations of stone flies found in the river . I would give those patterns a go . You can always try a buggy soft hackle , they work every where .

I tied up a buggy SH in the colors of Ohio State U for my wife! I'm from Michigan and married a buckeye.

Thanks for all the input it really seems that muddlers are great choice for this river? I will be tying some of those in two or three color schemes.
