Default One Armend Fly Tyer named Wilson

Has anyone heard of this man? My dad has a great fly Called the "Wilson Special" I cannot find any info about him or this fly. I have two one original and one left from a few being made for me. The fly itself is a black bodied, red tailed, with white deer hair over back with brown hackle... Anyone! With any info on "Wilson" or the "Wilson Special" please reply, has anyone ever heard of this fly under another name????

Hi,

Nope, but that's just me. if you post a picture of one of the few you have someone will identify it I'm sure. If you're looking to get some then someone will probably make you a few too.
