This variation of Night Hawk was tied by Contributing Fly Tyer Clark Lucas. The pattern came from Dec Hogan's book, A Passion for Steelhead. Clark's adaptations are in parenthesis. Dec Hogan writes that he has taken steelhead on this pattern in all seasons on this traditional Atlantic salmon fly. You can read about Clark and see many more of his fine speys by visiting The Flies of Clark Lucas.

Webmaster notes: This fly was given to me by Clark for fishing. It is now in my summer steelhead box along with some other flies from Clark for my next summer steelhead outing.
