There is more than one opinion on when and where this pattern was first developed. Chet told me that this pattern was first tied by Bill Zimmerman of Zimmerman's Sport Shop in the early 1950's. It was named after Maynard's camps in Northern Maine. All marvel patterns seem to have evoloved from this orginal. It is common to see different cheeks used from the Jungle Cock cheek feather shown here, to the golden phesant tippet used by Bill Zimmerman to just small black feathers Ora Smith would use. I have caught salmon and trout in every lake I have ever used it.
