Today’s Throw Back Thursday fly is the Renegade, an attractor fly developed in 1928 by Taylor “Beartracks” Williams. It’s said the original fly had all white hackle and was changed to brown/white when “Beartracks” moved to Sun Valley.

Another story states George Herter claimed it was an English fly pattern named the Marryat, tied by Mrs Edith Cox in the late 1800s and named for George Marryat.

Whatever the truth is, it’s still an effective fly, although forgotten by many.
