In 1922 Judge Charlie Adams was fishing on the nearby Boardman river when he noticed some kind of hatch taking place./>
None of the flies in his tackle box looked anything like those that were hatching so he asked his friend, Len Halladay, to tie a new pattern for him.

Halladay did, using gray wool for the body and Rhode Island Red Rooster feathers for the wings and thus was born what is arguably the most widely used fly in the world.
