Credit where credit is due...

Do any of you fly 'historians' know who is credited with the design of the 'Bjorn (or Bjorn's) Super Prawn'?

I believe it's a fellow named Bjorn at the Fly Fisher (fly shop) in Lacey WA. If you want to confirm that, call them at 360-491-0181.

fishNphysician,

Hey, I owe you one!

It was George Cook himself and your post that led me to Bjorn Beech - the originator of the Bjorn's Prawn. I had a great chat with Mr. Beech about his wonderful fly and its origins - and was quite surprised to learn that, although the fly gained popularity as a King Salmon fly in Alaska, it was first fished on the Cowlitz river for Steelhead.

Thanks again for your "lead"!

Igor
