The Lady Amherst is an Atlantic salmon fly pattern of Canadian
origin which bears resemblance to the British classics. It was
originated around 1925 by George Bonbright, who is also known for a
various streamer fly patterns. Bates (1996) lists the fly as
originally being named "Bonbright #2", but was changed to "Lady
Amherst" because of the wing material and to avoid confusion with an
earlier fly named "Bonbright #1". It was such a successful fly on
the Grand Cascapedia that guides would suggest only this pattern for
use, in sizes up to 5/0. It may be dressed with either 2 pair of
Amherst pheasant tippets, Ranger style, or as a strip-wing using
Amherst pheasant tail.
