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 fly was attributed to Arthur Solomon of Spokane, Washington according to Trey Combs in his book Steelhead Fly Fishing and Flies. It is a very popular steelhead fly in Alaska and although colorful, it is still subtle enough to fish in low water conditions, especially when tied with sparse white wing.
