"Idaho Fly Fishers Association - I's FREE!" was written by contributing editor YellowStoneFly at the Idaho Fly Fishers blog. Few people realize that
has the largest area of wilderness in the lower 48 states. With that fact comes the knowledge that there is a great fishery here that few have had the opportunity to explore. Sure everyone in the Idaho US that fly fishes knows about Montana, Colorado and Wyoming, but few have experienced . Fly fishing in southern Idaho is publicized, but the remainder of the state sees little fly fishing pressure. With rivers like the Kootenai, Clark Fork, Idaho Coeur d' Alene, Snake, Salmon, St. Joe, St. Maries, Spokane and the fishermen can spend almost a lifetime and never fish all of the good holes. Clearwater Idaho fly fishing, I believe, will soon surpass all the other destinations. US
I am new to
, and like any fly fisher who has ever relocated, long for fellow fly fishing enthusiasts with whom to spend a day or two on the water. I have developed this site with the hope of finding fellow fly fishers who might show me the ropes on their local waters and learn how to fish mine as well. I would like to develop a list of persons with whom I (and "we" the other members) can go fishing. Realize though, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE AN IDAHO RESIDENT TO JOIN, you only have to have a desire to fish here in our incredibly beautiful state. I will try to keep my fellow Idaho fly fishing friends appraised of local and statewide fishing conditions, little known places that hold fish and the latest in fly fishing techniques and innovations as well as suggested flies to use at specific times. Please come back often to see what we have to offer and make suggestions that might make our site more pleasurable and informative. Idaho
My contact email is: IdahoAngler@live.com. Please send me a note and I will add you to our list of persons seeking Idaho fly fishing companions. For Idaho fly fishing regulations go to the Idaho Fish and Game website and get complete details. Another site which I personally find useful is the USGS (US Geological Survey) website. The later is not very user friendly, but is a very good resource. PS-If you have items to place in our new IDFFA Swap Shoppe (Opening SOON!) drop us an email and we will add them to our list. Please remember, this is a swap shoppe and is not designed for sale items. We all have fishing "stuff" accumulated over the years which we no longer use. Get rid of it today and replace with more functional items. Give us an idea as to what you want in exchange for each item and see if "one mans junk (really is) another man's treasure." Photos will be helpful. Obviously, you need to try and keep values comparable. You have nothing to lose. This is a free IDFFA service.
