This pattern was originated and tied by long time Salmonfly.Net associate Leon Guthrie of Galashiels, Scotland. Leon has been prolific contributor to Salmonfly.Net for a several years, and has become known for his creativity and some very unique patterns. He is now retired and fishing in his native Scotland and is a regular at the site Game Angler Online where you will see many more of his flies. Leon writes that when Peach marabou was introduced it made this a better fly. You can see many more of Leon Guthrie's originals at The Flies of Leon Guthrie.
