Talking Pitcher Classic Trout Dressing

Hi folks,
I have been reading a book called 'Fishing In Wonderland' and the author talks about a dressing he developed for using in the Yellowstone National Park called the 'Pitcher'. This was so called after the superintendant of the park in the late 19th century called John Pitcher, who was responsible for restoring the fish stocks to the park.
There is a written description, but no picture. I was wondering if anyone still uses this dressing, described as the ultimate trout dressing?
Im keen to have a go a tying a couple to try on my local river in Scotland, maybe tweek it with some modern materials.
I would really appreciate some help, pictures would be grand!

Cheers,

Fergus
