In 1986, very early in the camouflage revolution, Bill Jordan decided to try his hand at designing a camo pattern.

Bill was pinching pennies and fishing bass tournaments on the side to create income. And that is how Bill came to be sitting in his parents' front yard one day in 1986, with paper and coloured pencils, sketching and colouring the bark of a giant oak tree that grew there. Bill believed that by layering the images of twigs and leaves over a vertical bark background, he could create a three-dimensional appearance that would match a variety of terrain—and make his pattern distinct.
