Deschutes Demon

A variation of the vintage pattern (1960s) from Portland Tackle Merchant, Don and Lola McClain. It's noted in John Shewey's Classic Steelhead Flies. A relatively simple pattern to tie. It was their best seller. Lola is known as the originator of the Deschutes Skunk hairwing pattern as well.
