Looks like Ed Story from Feather Craft used the "Palmered" as the inspiration for the "Crackleback"

Note the links to his other blogs on the right side. The man's a hell of a fly tyer.

And this line is cool:

"Then they throw their snare, and the fish, attracted and maddened by the colour, comes straight at it, thinking from the pretty sight to gain a dainty mouthful; when, however, it opens its jaws, it is caught by the hook, and enjoys a bitter repast, a captive."

I generally ignore salmon fly dressers as being foppish and silly, especially the ones who just make their own, personal, garish creations...but...

I've had a talk with this guy at Somerset, then promptly watched him churn out a fly in his fingers in front of me. If you ever see him at a show, I highly suggest taking a few moments to talk with him, and then picking up his book for a good view on how things used to be.

Ken is a great guy and a heck of a flyfisherman to boot. The first time I flyfished with him he was out of character and fished with modern equipment. I almost did'nt recognize him without his Colonial period gear.
