This is the 5th in the series of Syd Glasso flies tied by Washington Contributing Fly Tyer, Stu Farnham. The White Heron is unique in that the actual Syd Glasso fly was really unnamed. Stu explains below.

Stu's Notes: In November of 2003 I was fortunate to be invited to see a collection of Syd Glasso's flies owned by Bob Taylor of Vancouver, BC. The collection held a number of surprises, including this unnamed fly. Because of its similarities to others in Syd's series of steelhead flies, I've taken to calling it the "White Heron". The fly features a body of flat silver tinsel and white seal fur, a hackle of blue eared heron, a collar of gadwall flank, and white hackle tip wings.
