    Just an historical note: The Spruce Fly streamer was apparently developed by brothers Cap and Milo Godfrey in Oregon around 1918. That might make it the oldest fly still in (relatively) common use in the Pacific Northwest.

    Over time I have come to believe there is a considerable amount of trout mojo in peacock sword tails as on the photo of the original inspiration.
