A Dee fly pattern from Jean Paul Dessaigne in John Shewey’s Spey Flies and Dee Flies.

Jean Paul has a very interesting story on how he got interested in fly fishing and fly tying. Check it out here - http://flytierspage.com/jpdessaigne/jpdessaigne_bio.htm

His Salmon flies are in another stratosphere. Here is my attempt at the pattern.
