The pattern was created by Karl M. Haufler of Edmonds, WA. The fly was designed to mimic a leech and is quite effective in lakes and ponds whether leeches are present or not. It is said to be especially effective with brook trout and the Lahontan cutthroat subspecies.
The original pattern uses a dark green phase peacock breast for the collars, but I've replaced this with natural black schlappen which is easier to obtain. Black hen hackle (whiting American) may also work for this purpose.
