The pattern for this fly, originated by Walt Johnson, came from the fine book by Dick Stewart and Farrow Allen, Flies for Steelhead. They write that this fly, was originated in the 1970s for fishing to the early run of summer Steelhead that enter the Columbia River system from March on. The bright greens and yellows of this fly seem to attract these shy but aggressive fish.
