hopeless crew

Spring 2019 Letter from the Editor

A few years ago, we vacationed in Idaho and were stunned by its beauty, especially the Sawtooth Range. We spent a few nights in the little town of Stanley for some day hikes and I kicked myself for not bringing my fly rod when I caught sight of the Salmon River. This issue’s cover story, about a hunt in those gorgeous mountains, has put the destination back at the top of the list for me—and I suspect it will for you, too, regardless of whether or not you hunt.
