Golden Demon was tied by Australian Fly Tyer, Bob Frandsen. The Golden Demon has a sketchy origin. It appeared to have originated in England in the 1930s, then tested in New Zealand by Zane Grey. From there, he brought it to the West Coast where it became popular as a Salmon and Steelhead fly. Other variations, include the Black Demon and the Silver Demon. You can see more of Bob's flies at The Flies of Bob Franden.
