About the Big Hole Demon Trout Fly
The Big Hole Demon is a good general search pattern
that was created for the Big Hole River.
My name is Dean Halse and I live in Bozeman Montana. I was looking on your website and saw you have the Big Hole Demon as one of your flies. I just thought you may want to know more about the history of this fly which was actually invented by my grandfather, Pete Narancich. Pete was a Fly Fishing activist, he owned a ranch on the Big Hole River a few miles outside of Twin Bridges. Joe Brooks visited his ranch on a regular basis to fish and he actually made a plaque for him which showcased the Big Hole Demon. Pete died a couple of years ago at age of 96.
