This WAS the most famous taupo + tongariro streamer fly, but may have been replaced by the Wooly Bugger, which is easier to tie, and debatably as effective...but the Red Setter is still a great fly. The story I heard was that, one day in the 1950's, a local named Geoff Sanderson tied a fly using the hair-of-his-dog, a red-setter, for tail material. Squirrel tail fibres have generally replaced dog-tail, and "no animals have been harmed during the making of this fly."
