COMMENT Sometimes called the Wood Special, this fly is believed to be originated by a tyer named Joe Sterling. Eric Leiser's "The Book of Fly Patterns", also provides a different dressing then the one listed above. The difference is that in this reference, there is no tag, and a throat of brown hackle is added before jungle cock cheeks, and the grizzly collar.
