    <drumroll please> It's the designated hitter stonefly pattern.

    At this point I'm pretty well stumped but I have a feeling that you have to follow the infield fly rule to tie it.

    We need Mr Ficklin to confirm but here's what I found


    The Designated Hitter Skwala is a fantastically attractive and durable imitation of an emergent or adult Skwala stonefly.

    He said it was a traditional wet fly pattern... however, Bill, you may have nailed it.

    Thanks, Tim. The Major, Wickham's Fancy & Potts flies represent great memories for me . . .

    Major Pitcher??? Weird. I looked for "Pitcher" as part of the name of a wet fly pattern and found zippo.

    Interesting.

    That's one for Jim.

    Must be the "designated hitter" didn't exist in the 1890's.
