The Originator of this fly, Harry Lemire of Black Diamond, Washington, created it in 1971. Lemire says that this is one of his favorite wet flies. He fishes it with a greased line presentation in the summer using small sized flies and he fishes it in large sizes on a sinking line in the winter. A variation of this fly is the Golden Edge Yellow; witch simply has a yellow body instead of orange.
