The pattern for this fly came from the fine book by Alaska Flyfishers, Fly Patterns of Alaska. If you are interested in fly fishing Alaska, or in popular Alaska fly patterns, this book is a must. It is chock full of patterns of all types. They write that this attractor pattern was developed by Bill Baker who has fished it successfully in Alaska for Kings, Silvers, and Reds; it is also said to be effective for Steelhead, Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char, Dolly Varden, and Grayling. It should be fished dead-drift and bounced along the bottom.
