The Dirt Fly was originated and tied by William Lovelace. You can see many more of the numerous flies he has contributed to Salmonfly.Net on his page, The Flies of William Lovelace.

Bill's Notes: “Dirt Fishing” is that popular pastime of sweeping the ground with a metal detector and digging for Buried Treasure. This fly is dedicated to Brandon, TJ and Eric. Steelhead are often looking for a glint of Silver or Gold just like those who go dirt fishing America.
