That looks like it might be a riff on Noel's fly. It may well have been invented independent of Noel's idea because there is another continent involved. Interesting to watch the creative development of flies, it's one of my favorite elements in this sport.

Not to diminish the idea but I see a "bendback" quality to this pattern and I hate bendbacks for holding on to fish. The hook point will often scrape the fish but not get purchase. Wondering if someone knows if the pattern manages to avoid that problem?
