    Hi Tony:
    I just saw your video on the “Depth Charge Nymph”. It’s good to see there is some interest in the fly style that I originated. The double bead style and the name “Depth Charge” were developed when I originated my Vinci’s “Depth Charge Bird’s Nest” pattern that was featured in Fly Fisherman Magazine and was also a pattern that was marked by Umpqua Feather Merchants for some years. I would appreciate it if you could mention my name and comment that I originated the 2 bead style in your video. Thanks. Greg Vinci
