This attractive version of the Faux Lum Plum is the result of some recent work Scott Howell has been doing with beaded flies. The original version of the Faux Lum Plum (which see) was designed by Amy Randall-Hazel and has proven to be a very effective pattern on the lower Deschutes. You can see more of Scott Howell's flies at The Flies of Scott Howell.
