I have some in a Whitefish box. That and its red cousin were deadly in the winter. Keep posting, King - I am thoroughly enjoying your efforts! Thanks!Does anyone on this board even carry the great Grey Hackle Yellow anymore? What's wrong with us?
Not quite that old Normi'll bet you have one from the "vise of the actual originator"
Just for you a lil history on this fly it was named after the fly shop and bait store here on the Kalama. Back in the day it was a going place with fly anglers from all over the world coming to the Kalama for the extremely good salmon and steelhead fishing we once had. With the fish in a never ending decline so was the customer influx thus ending and closure of Prichard's Western Angler store. Everytime I drive by the shop and see it all closed up brings back such great memories and I can't help feeling great sorrow for what it once was. When the shop closed it was owned by the Orzel family around 2010 or 11
