The original is a pattern devised by John Shewey, Editor-in-Chief of the US Northwest Fly Fishing family of magazines. It already had elements of the classic suspender buzzer pattern, I rather like the addition of the hackle, the original used a peacock thorax and grizzly hackle, I’ve used a badger.
