Notes: The Sierra Bright Dot is a Fore and Aft pattern. The pattern has
been used primarily on the Eastside of the Southern Sierra for many years going back to the 1950's. It has remained popular as an
attractor pattern yet has not extended it's popularity beyond the Sierra. The Fore and Aft dry pattern
goes back to the early 1900's as it's origins have been disputed between the French and the English.
Jean-Paul Puguegnot's book , French Fishing Flies, cites a Doctor Juge who created Fore and Aft patterns
in 1918. His Taquine pattern consists of a red thread body with grey hackles. Horace Brown of England
also laid claim to designing Fore and After flies in the 1930's. Either way, the pattern eventually
made it's way to the Sierra Nevada and became a major pattern for the region.
