Wallowa Cherry was originated and tied by Samonfly.Net Contributing Fly Tyer William Lovelace.

Bill's notes: "I created this fly after I visited Dave McNeese’s shop in Salem, Oregon while Dave was tying the McNeese Madness. I liked the sparkly plastic chenille that he was using and bought some bright colors with a winter fly for the Wallowa River in mind."
