Is this a new fly?

I have been using a pattern exactly like that since the mid 80s.
It was tied to emulate arthropda in Kirmen lake, for Big Brookies.
The bead mid-rib makes for motion like the small white side swimmers.
The guy I learned it from called it his antron fly. From the carpet he used to tie it with.
He had been tying it for twenty years when I learned it.
Very few new things out there.
Like the orange scud.
Didn't know what caused the color, but knew to tie those 30 years ago.

I should have said orange spot scud. Didn't know about parasite. But saw the pattern...
Never have tied an all orange...
now that I think about it.
My effective pattern is lrg gray with a hint of green. With a wred wire wrap.....

Many years ago, I told my professor that a photograph subject had "been done".
He said..."Not by you"....
That's all that's really new.
