    Your Basic Nymph
    .. The bottom has fallen out in town. Meltwater is under the snow.
    .. A few redds have been spotted on the Madison River, (below the dam,) Between the Lakes. Can Spring be far behind? Probably!
    .. We're taking our cue from the neighbors and laying in a supply of basic subsurface flies for the early part of the season. Even the itinerant guides are tying a bunch of basic nymphs. Fly size and depth will be important early on.
    .. Obsessing about snow depth and snow water content is beginning to  dominate conversations at the post office, grocery store, hardware store, and at the pharmacy.
    .. Despite the few warm days we've had there is still a bit of winter to come. For an excellent prognosis about the upcoming spring and the water situation check out the News Page At Parks' Fly Shop.
