Ward Bean states:
"The Deadly Shiner is a rendition of Larry Dahlberg's Flash Dancer which he created when he was a young guide during the summers in northern Minnesota. It's also resembles the Flashabou Streamer which is based on Ed Story's Salt and Pepper Streamer."

"I fished it (the Goldie) at the Penobscot River, Maine and caught well over 50 SMB in an afternoon, my guide almost threw me out of the boat, I was catching 2 fish to every one of his. I landed 6 large trophy LMB at Burrage the previous weekend before the STS outing on this fly. I want to fish Burrage again with better weather, anyone game?... tight lines to all & see you on the water."
