    Forty years ago this was our go to pattern for coho in the Harrison River and Dewdney Slough. It was a favourite there of Jack Vincent and Lee Straight. I still carry it and I've caught SRCs on it here on Vancouver Island. Can also be tied on a #8 Mustad 36890 or similar TULE salmon hook. The yarn we use is a creamy yellow and my bag of it says DMC 7727. Nice to see it as it stirs some memories. Thanks Scott.
