I recently find myself thinking over the past year of fishing. Some of the memories that I can't stop running through my mind are from the month my friends and I spent chasing the Salmon Fly hatch across Montana and Idaho. To honor this majestic bug and the hatch of a lifetime on the Big Hole we were lucky enough to fish, I sat down at my vise with a bottle of Merlot until this Nymph appeared.
