Re: Saltwater Pattern Question?
It's definitely Ugly something. And George Heinold is the creator. He's from Connecticutt and I remember him writing about it twice in OL. Once was in his SW column which had a full description of it and the other time in the regional section ( old tan paper section in the middle of the mag). Pretty sure it was tied on a long shank( like the old fluke hooks) and was three different saddle hackles stacked on top of one another. Might have been red , white and blue feathers but not sure about that. I caught fish on them and they were an easy tie. Just not sure on the recipe. Used mainly bucktails back then and didn't pay as much attention as I do now that I'm an old f--t!
