A bit of history: Now a fairly common fly, the Jackass was created by
    Ora Smith. It started out as a variation of the Golden Demon. When
    it became successful, his fishing partner, Eddie Phippard, asked Ora
    for some more, but wondered what he should call it. The reply was,
    “What should you call it? You can call it a ‘Jackass’ for all I care.”
    This pattern is mentioned in Trolling Flies, by Dick Stewart and Bob
    Leeman.
