Hallie Thompson Galaise was born and raised in Manchester, Vermont. Like many of her contemporaries, she sought a job in the fly-tying shop of the Orvis Company. She began working for Orvis at the age of sixteen, and was the last Orvis tier to have been tutored by Mary Orvis Marbury. Until her death, Hallie Galaise tied dozens of flies each day without a vise and with the assistance of only a small pair of scissors. This fly was the last one she ever tied

Fly fishing!--another favourite past time. This fly is a very old pattern that has faded away in popularity giving way to more modern creations.  However--with a box full of the modern stuff I was coming up blank on the Bow River one day when I came across an elderly Englshman who was catching and releasing trout with abandon.He took time to pause and chat and gave me one of these and showed me how to fish it.  WOW!
