Fran Betters who lived on the banks of the West Branch of the Ausable in the Adirondacks came up with this fly during the 60's to fish the tumbling streams of the area. An attractor pattern which seems to imitate a variety of bugs, it is an indispensable fly that ought to be in every fly fisher's fly box.
