Steve Burke's Salmon and Steelhead Fly-Tying Guide

Dusty Miller(Classic Version)

This beautiful fly was tied by Wolfgang von Malottke of Classic Salmon Flies Wolfgang's Home Page
Since I tie mostly Pacific Salmon and Steelhead flies and cannot do justice to the classics, he has agreed to let me use his pictures.
