The Arctic Angel series of flies comes from the bench of Samonfly.Net Contributing Fly Tyer William Lovelace. Arctic Angel GBS is modelled after the popular Green Butt Skunk originated by the late Dan Callaghan.

Bill's notes: "I am calling this series of flies Arctic Angels due to their primary ingredients Arctic Fox wings and bodies and tails made out of Angelina fibers otherwise known to tiers as Ice Dubbing. This is a Green Butt Skunk variation."
