History is not always as clear-cut as we would like it to be. Such is the case with the pattern I present to you today. This 'Seth Green' was created by Clarence Roberts, a famous Michigan tyer of the 1950s.
As the story goes --- Clarence had a fishing buddy and fellow conservation office, with whom he worked, named Seth Green. Presumably, the fly was named in his honor. The Department of Natural Resources can not confirm the existence of a Conservation Officer of that name, and the family of Clarence Roberts has no recollection of Clarence having known anyone named Seth Green.
