The Redneck Revenge......

is a fly inspired by John Sheweys Ricks Revenge and Brian Silveys Snow Cone. Every year on "guide vacation" we play around with different new flies, trying to find one that might just work a little better than the rest. We always come up with a winner, whether it be bringing back an old forgotten classic, or a spin on a modern hit.This years winner. Many Steelhead have fallen victim to it.

If you look hard enough (or enlarge the photo) you will see Silvey hard at work in the middle of the photo. There is a chance I snuck on a Redneck Revenge onto his clients line before I hiked up the hill above them in this classic run.

Even this Jack Chinook could not resist the Redneck!
