The pattern for this fly came from the fine book by Dick Stewart and Farrow Allen, Flies for Steelhead. It was originated by C.L. Franklin around 1940 for summer steelhead, proven to be a good fly on rivers that include the Grand Ronde and Wenatchee in Washington, the Clearwater in Idaho, and the Klamath in California. It is here because it is also a very popular sea-run cutthroat fly.
