I developed this fly several years ago for the late Chum runs on the Puget Sound Rivers and it has been very successful in different variations. The original was tied with a chartreuse saddle hackle. This one is weighted for bigger waters, but this can be varied as well, depending on the speed and depth of the water you are fishing.
