This fantastic version of Lucas' Polar Cocktail was tied by the late, Scott Howell. His notes written, when he sent it are below.
Scotty's Notes: This stunning Steelhead and Salmon fly was designed by Master tyer Ronn Lucas Sr., who certainly needs no introduction. While tying a batch of Polar Shrimp, Ronn "allowed his mind to wander...as it sometimes does", and the end-result is his beautiful Polar Cocktail.
