Salmonfly patterns from North Umpqua tyer

This is the first in a series of photos from the Northwest Fly Tyers Expo. John Matthews, a professional tyer from Idleyld Park on the North Umpqua was tying some salmonfly patterns at the first table I came to. He uses silk screened wings,crystal flash, closed cell foam, moose mane and deer hair.

According to the bio on the NW Fly Tyers Expo site, John is "The Fly Painter" at the expo. He has been painting flies on cars at the expo for years.
