The bass fly might be the only "original North America" fly? I understand the Streamer origination is in dispute?
Awesome

Aren't Hairwing Atlantic Salmon flies a North American invention?
John, that KILLS!!!!! It's frickin' exqusite. REALLY an ass kickin' tye. Although, i have just one suggestion.....(and of course, each to hi own).....imho, i think it would loook even better if the gut were attached to the sides of the hooks and not the bottom. It would give it a more streamlinned look, without that drop off look. Also makes for an easier/nicer head and a better platform for mounting wings. Try it sometime.....you'll like it, BET! ;) Great pic btw..... 8-) See you soon. :D

Hairwing Salmon flies are mentioned as early as 1770 in the UK however they were certainly developed and widely used in North America. The Black Bass was a NA specie so the fly development was pure North American.
John's fly is a traditional "chubb" fly and the gut belongs on bottom.

Dave,

I dont have the actual dressing for this fly, but I can tell you what I used in my interpretation.

tip: oval gold tinsel
tag: yellow ostrich herl
tail: orange hackle fibers
body: gold floss rear, front red/orange mixed seals fur
rib: oval gold tinsel
hackle: orange
wing:2 red rooster hackles, outside of that 2 pairs of Satyr Tragopan staggered.
The hook is an old blind eye Mustad, 1/0.

Here is a picture of the plate...
