This is another fly that I included this fly because it looked to me to be a promising fly. Again, I have not tried it yet, but will when I get out for some Silvers again, though that might not be until next year. Then again, this might just be a good Chum fly when they are taking pink flies. It certainly resembles many similar patterns tied for Chum. Bob Triggs says that this is his adaptation of the Pink Floozie a Silver salmon fly designed by the late Ted Gerken (The reason for the convoluted originator reference in the title).
