We lost a great friend of the Driftless area.
Todd Durian, a great friend of our area who worked passionately for many years to protect and expand the ecology and fishery of the Driftless passed away recently. The Milwaukee leech was named in his honor years ago. This season and forevermore, we will know that whenever we tie on one of those flies he will be looking over us and the area he loved so much. Rest in peace Todd.
