That's an attractive fly, @flytire.  Do you know if it was named after Ted WIlliams?  A very cursory search came up with nada.

origin unknown to me. only the recipe is given in the book

both book authors are now dead so the history passed with them

its quite possible it was named for ted williams. i know he was a fisherman but i dont know if he fished for atlantic salmon
