The pattern for this fly came from the fine book by Dick Stewart and Farrow Allen, Flies for Steelhead. They write that this fly was originated by Mike Mercer for Alaskan King and Silver Salmon. It is listed in the book because it has also become a productive Steelhead pattern in Alaska and British Columbia.
