A portrait of Mike Richmond taken on Silver Creek a number of years ago. This was before Social Media blew up when the brown drake thing got going. Mike, who I had never met before, happened to have driven over from Boise on what was one of the more prolific brown drake spinner falls I have ever seen. There were hundreds of thousands of drakes in the tall grass and Mike had shown up in the middle of the day. As luck would have it, with nobody else around, the clouds rolled in and Mike and his fishing buddy had a massive daytime spinner fall all to themselves.
