I didn't know what it looks like so I did a Google search, definitely looks interesting: Featured Fly Tiers - Warmwater Fly Tyer - by Ward Bean

I like it! I'm going to have to tie up a few of those. I just bought some materials for white ones today because they are pretty much sold out everywhere.

I almost bout the white tinsel chenile.

After looking at the fly recipe, I have come to the conclusion that the closest commercially available version of that fly is called the Beadhead Crystal Bugger in copper. It is distributed by Umpqua Feather Merchants.

The "Chili Pepper" version is probably a local pattern that is locally tied for outfitters and fly shops.

One of my atlantic salmon fishing buddies landed one on an unweighted Chili Pepper a couple of summers ago. I couldn't believe it when he showed me the fly! He gave me all the materials to tie some; never got around to it.
Probably a mistake.
