This pattern came from the fine book by Peter O'Reilly, Trout & Salmon Flies of Ireland. He writes that there are several color variations of this fly achieved by changing the rear body color. Badger & Red and Badger and Golden Olive are examples. This is a simple to tie but effective pattern, especially for dull, overcast days.
