Hydro Hustler was tied by Contributing Fly Tyer William Lovelace.   See Bill's notes below, but also read more about him, and see many more of his flies at The Flies of William Lovelace.

Bill's Notes: Derek Quillam in The Complete Guide to New Zealand Trout Lures states that the origin of this fly is unknown but that he believed it started as a North American Steelhead fly.
