Brown Turkey, from Trout and Salmon Flies of Scotland by Stan Headley was dressed by contributing fly tyer Monte Smith. Monte writes, "I like to throw a double now and then on waters that allow it, and I enjoy tying them as a bit of a diversion from the typical steelhead hairwings. Something about a double hook that just looks good to me."

You can see more of the flies tied by Monte Smith and many of his own designs at The Flies of Monte Smith.
