The Red Dogwood GP was tied by Contributing Fly Tyer, Alyssa Halls. Alyssa Halls and Neil Strickland, who is also a contributing fly tyer own ANADROMY, a unique online store specializing in "quality, innovative, and effective patterns" for Steelhead, centrally located on the beautiful Hoh River on the Olympic Peninsula..

Alyssa's Notes: The Red Dogwood GP. Dedicated to Lee Spencer on Steamboat Creek, watching steelhead chase red dogwood leaves in the currents year after year. This is an original pattern which gets its bold colors and iridescence from dyed pheasant plumage. The tented wing keeps a large profile even in swift currents.
