This fly was not known by me until I was introduced to it by a friend a few months ago. Since then I have been unable to find much information about its history or beginnings, despite having trawled the net and my collection of reference books extensively. (I am banned from buying more - by the Minister of Home Affairs).
Suffice to say I will continue to research this attractive fly as I believe any fly that someone has taken the time and effort to design and tie, deserves some form of recognition.
I have not fished the fly as yet, and look forward to trying it out on my next outing, who knows, it could be the 'holy grail' of flies, that I have been looking for, one that I so desperately need at present.
If anyone has any documented factual information on this attractive pattern, or can point me in a direction of source, I would be more than happy to receive it and pass credit where due.
