Interesting fly Janne, a sort of Quack - Quill Gordon hybrid. Very nicely tied :-)

Janne,

The H&L Variant is an old favorite of mine. It somehow lost it's place in my dry fly box, probably to the newest, latest and greatest fly that didn't prodice as well as the H&L. It's my understanding that it was a favorite fly of Dwight "Ike" Eisenhower as well. Well dressed fly.

Thank you REE.
I wonder if anyone knows the history behind this pattern. What I´ve read the pattern comes from Montana or Idaho, but who is the inventor of this great fly?
