Fly Fishing the Skeena with the ‘Richard Sherman’
Posted on October 9, 2015

We’ve been rolling out an array of Skeena River fly fishing content for the past two weeks. Today the story continues with the backstory of the blue-and-green Seahawks-themed fly that caught Andrew Bennett a fish on the last play of the day. Hand-tied by Skeena Spey photographer Adrienne Comeau, the intruder-style fly was nicknamed the ‘Richard Sherman’ for its shutdown ability to land wild, native steelhead in a challenging high-pressure situation. The Seattle folks and Hawks fans on the trip were, of course, a little loud about the road win. Todd Moen of Catch Magazine put together a little video to tell the story behind the story. We’re posting it today for your Blue Friday viewing enjoyment. Go Hawks.  —LYA Editor
