This fly was tied by the late Scotty Howell for Salmonfly.Net. You can see more of his flies and his notes at The Flies of Scott Howell.  See His notes below:

Scottie's Notes: This is a semi-classical Irish/Scots shrimp fly pattern with a more modern look. I've used HT Braid and HareLine Polar Chenille as substitutes for the silk floss and tinsel ribbing used in the original bodies. The name of this dressing is Scots/Gaelic for "battle-shrimp" and the colors were inspired by my family's (Hywel) heraldic shield. Claret-colored shrimp and leech patterns are very effective in the Northwest, especially in inland British Columbia.
