Platinum Blonde was tied by Contributing Fly Tyer William Lovelace.   See many more of his flies at his page on this site, The Flies of William Lovelace.

Bill's Notes: This is the Joe Brooks pattern that started it all. This is tied in the original Brooks high wing style that he thought gave it a breathing action in the water while it is stripped.
