Default RIP Sylvester Nemes!

The Legendary Sylvester Nemes passed away on Thursday Feb 3rd with his wife Hazel by his side. I was fortunate to have shared many conversations with Syl over the years and his soft hackle techniques have made for better days of fishing when all else failed. He was a gracious man who always held his back to the flow of the river and his grace upon this sport will be cherished for years to come. I hope that he is sitting in the middle of an eternal "Mother's Day Caddis Hatch" catching fish on every swing!

He will live on as the Softhackle wizard for sure. Maybe he and Jack Gartside are up there tying away.

I was fortunate to spend some time chatting with him one night before the Ranch opener on The Henry's Fork. Truly an evening I'll not soon forget.
I have never met a nicer person.

God bless.

Syl tied one of his famous Mother's Day caddis patterns for me a few years ago at the East Idaho Fly Tying Expo. We had a great time together and the fly is a cherished memento. He will be missed.

I never knew Mr. Nemes but certainly knew of his books and what he has done for soft hackle flies.

It's time to research some of his softhackles, and tie a few in his honor. RIP.
