The Supervisor was tied by Salmonfly.Net Contributing Fly Tyer Ard Stetts. You can see more of Ard's flies at The Flies of Ard Stetts . See his notes below:

Ard's Notes: The Supervisor was conceived by Joseph S. Strickney of Saco Maine in 1925. Strickney was the supervising warden for the department of fish and game for the Rangely area and did not dress his own flies. Mr. Strickney is credited with the configuration of materials for The Supervisor but in fact had this fly dressed for his use by many different tiers of the region therefore lending ambiguity to the creator’s identity.
