This fantastic version of Lucas' Polar Cocktail was tied by contributing fly tyer, Scott Howell. See his notes about this fly below. You can see more of Scott Howell's flies at The Flies of Scott Howell.

SCOTT HOWELL'S NOTE(S): This stunning Steelhead and Salmon fly was designed by Master tyer Ronn Lucas Sr., who certainly needs no introduction. While tying a batch of Polar Shrimp, Ronn "allowed his mind to wander...as it sometimes does", and the end-result is his beautiful Polar Cocktail.
