SLSS was tied by Charles Dickson Jr. You can find more of his flies on his page on this site, The Flies of Charles Dickson Jr.

Charlie's Notes: This fly was invented by artist Rick Harington and it is a fly he uses successfully on some Lake Ontario tributaries. Rick goes by the name SLSS on several internet bulletin boards hence the name. When I asked him for the pattern he said he really didnít have one for it and kind of made it up as he went along. So what I have below is as close to Ricks fly as I could get in look and feel. It has worked well for me.
