Scott Howell made great use of modern materials to tie a reduced version of the Randall Kaufman "Signal Light". Randall Kaufmann's original called for the first 1/2 of the body to be tied with fluorescent orange and fluorescent green (chartreuse) yarn and a black marabou wing over the mixed crystal flash.
Scotty's Notes: The Signal Light is one of Randall Kaufmann's most popular signature flies and is aptly named after the railroad signal lights that border the Deschutes River.
You can read about Scotty and see many more of his flies on his page on this site, Scotty Howell Flies.
