Michigan Stone - Another pattern where the originator's name is lost to history, but this pattern was quite popular in the 1970's and 80's and was probably originated in the early 70's.  It is a generalized stone pattern designed so that a change in the body color can be done to match the naturals where you are fishing.

Nelem's Caddis - This pattern was developed by a Mr. Nelem from the Detroit area and around the 1940's.  The investigation on this pattern by Michigan fly historian Tom Deschaine was limited to this information.  And, like many other older patterns this is NOT a caddis pattern, as named, but a Hex mayfly pattern.

No Hackle - This concept for a pattern first came from Doug Swisher and Carl Richards in 1965-66 from fishing the Au Sable River in Grayling, MI.  It was included in their book Selective Trout and was previously called the "Henwing" and "Hair Wing No Hackle".  This style of tying enjoyed a brief period of favor but fell out as it was found that the fly did not float as well as preferred.  A few years later this style of tying was reinvented and is now known as a comparadun.
