COMMENTS This early pattern was originated and popularized by Art Flick in his widely read books (Streamside Guide to Naturals and their Imitations, 1947; New Streamside Guide, 1969). It remains one of the most widely described patterns for Blacknose Dace and typically is the pattern available in flyshops and mail order catalogues.
