Several 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, a Salmonfly.Net contributing fly tyer, presents the series tied by his own hand. You can see more in this series and other flies tied by Andrew Marshall at The Flies of Andrew Marshall.
