Veach's Green Sockeye Fly was designed and tied by Master Tyer, Dr. David Burns. As you can see from his notes below, it proved to be a very successful fly.
Notes from Dr. Burns: A year ago I tied up one of these for my friend, Eric Veach, who lives in Gakona, AK. He said that it was such a great sockeye killer that I should get the pattern in a place that others could use it. I call it Veach's Green Sockeye Fly in order to keep track of it.
