Skrunk was originated and tied by Salmonfly.Net Contributing Fly Tyer Eric Martin.

Eric wrote about his fly, ". I've come up with a couple patterns for steelhead here in the Oregon coast range that I would be happy to pass on to fellow fishermen (fisherpersons!). One, a shrimp pattern, has even drawn the interest of Umpqua Feather Merchants, and has been used from Rainbow King Lodge to the Bahamas, I call it The Skrunk - why, I don't know. Shrimp was too normal, and my friend started calling them 'skrunks' and it went from there. The second (for the moment) is a spey-ish swing pattern called 'Victoria's Secret'."
