Notes: The pattern is a tribute to a cat named Piccaso that passed away in 2015. The colors in the pattern reflect the colors she had in her coat, and of course the pink throat is tied for her nose. Over the years, she had contributed to several dubbing mixes which were tied into nymph patterns. These flies caught a good deal of Arctic grayling and trout which she was offered a share.
