Cummings 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: The Cummings is another old standard for steelhead fishing on the west coast. It was originally invented the 1930ís by Ward Cummings and Clarence Gordon in Oregon. This is my version of the fly adapted to a tube.
