This dry fly is very popular on fast waters around the world because of it's ability to float well. It was developed on the west coast, California, as a variation of Jack Horner's "Horner Deer Hair Fly." It's popularity is contributed to Charlie Brooks, Dan Bailey (named it Goofus Bug), Jack Dennis, Pat and Sig Barnes, and a Canadian named Tom Thumb. However, moost agree that Jack Horner was the original creator.
