Sad news

On Sunday, Dec 1 Helen Nelson (Nelson's Spring Creek) died. Her husband Edwin died in October of last year. In 1952, Joe Brooks discovered the Paradise Valley spring creeks and convinced the Nelson's that they had something really special. In 1953 Joe and his wife Mary moved inot a bunkhouse with no running water, a wood burning stove and a 2 burner hot plate for the summer. The rest is history as this spring creek became a destination for fly fishers the world over. Helen was the most wonderful, positive, gracious host who always greeted returning fishermen almost as members of the family. I'll miss her deeply.
