Amnesia Chartreuse Green is an original fly designed by Ard Stetts. You can see more of Ard's flies at The Flies of Ard Stetts. See his notes about this fly below.

Ard's Notes: This fly was inspired by a Pacific Silver Salmon who chased and struck my leader butt, which consists of 22 of chartreuse green Amnesia. I rely on it and the classic Coburn Special for my green flies.
