I first tied this fly several years ago for a friend in New Zealand so he could see what a spey fly looked like. I used whatever scraps I had laying on the bench at the time. A short time later he e-mailed me wanting to know the name of the fly and where to get more. He didn't know it wasn't designed to fish, so he fished it anyway. It worked well on the NZ Bows and has since brought several summer steelhead to hand. My Kiwi buddy is the one who named the fly.
