Super-bugger: New favorite summer steelhead fly?

This is the fourth in a series of fly tying photos from the Northwest Fly Tyers Expo in Albany, Oregon.

Fly fishing guru Dorothy Zinky took some time during the event to show me how to tie a super-bugger. It's a pretty sweet pattern and I think it might replace the old cuckaburra from last year.

These leggy buggers are made without chenille. Instead, it's made from four densely wrapped hen hackles that push a lot of water and offer tons of movement.
