Spade comes from the bench of Salmonfly.Net Contributing Fly Tyer William Lovelace.  

Bill's notes: "This fly is based on the original Spade created in 1964 by Washington Outdoor Writer Bob Arnold profiled in Trey Combs’ Book Steelhead Fly Fishing. An effective fly that has spawned numerous variations including Alec Jackson’s series tied with style, fancier materials, custom hooks and his Yorkshire humor and fine storytelling."
