It has one misprint, he called my Umpqua Roosta fly the Rasta. The rasta is Frank Smyshurst fly... The roosta, started out its life as a big Bob Popovics surf candy with spun deer head, it got cleaned up by my buddy Steve Cali and called the G&S Hybrid and now the Roosta. Its the fly everyone used on the east cape for grande roosters. BTW My buddy Lance Peterson has a very good version called the Mona Lisa that is a killer fly. Heck, the way I look at it, we all copied Popovics flies. Thanks Bob .The master!
