Red Setter 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: This is a popular New Zealand Trout Lure that I tied for use as a steelhead fly. Geoff Sanderson is the creator of this popular fly. If I tied only one of the Fuzzy Wuzzy style flies for steelhead I think it would have to be this one in Fluorescent Orange.
