This is the third in the series of Syd Glasso flies tied by Washington Contributing Fly Tyer, Stu Farnham. You can see more of Stu's flies at The Flies of Stu Farnham. See his notes about the Orange Heron below.

Stu's Notes: Syd's Heron series is so named because it features heron feathers for the body hackle. Since heron is not legal in the US, most tiers substitute blue eared pheasant.
