OREGON FLY TYING LEGENDS PLATE - 2015

The "Oregon Fly Tying Legends Plate" displays flies tied by recipients of the Stan Walters Memorial Award.  This award (previously called the "Fly Tyer Of The Year Award" ) recognizes a tyer's skills, teaching, and innovation in the art of fly tying.

The photo of a Deschutes River Steelhead from Max Canyon, donated by John Shewey, and the 2015 show pin, honoring Robert Borden's "Borden Special", has been incorporated into the format.
