COMMENTS Originated by Herb Welch around 1923. Named after a popular Vaudeville actress of the era. It was intended to be primarily a smelt imitation. Like many of Welch's flies, it has a simple, yet elegant look with all the necessary ingredients required for effectiveness - white hackle, silver flash, dark back and prominent eye.
