"Pacific Northwest Fly Patterns" described the wet fly version of this fly as being perfected in the High Sierra in 1940 by Roy Patrick in 1940 and generally good for all types of freshwater fish. Possessing some black squirrel I tied up a few. Pinched up against a talus slope in Pintler Range in Montana a Pacific King brought a monster cutthroat out of the depths. Thanks for the memory.
