A few weeks ago Salmonfly.Net presented a series of flies, designed by Andrew Marshall for Steelhead, called the Deschutes River Dee series. Those flies were tied by contributing fly tyer Monte Smith. Now Andrew Marshall has joined Salmonfly.Net as a contributing fly tyer and presents the remainder of the series tied by his own hand. Mr. Marshall also tied this week's Atlantic Salmon fly of the week. Look for Andrew Marshall's Contributing Fly Tyer page in the coming weeks as more of his flies are presented, and several articles that are in the works.
