Fishing Buddies

New buddy Mark P's (Florida)
 first fish on a fly.
I love my wife, children, grand children, dogs and horses. They also love me back. But there is something to be said for those special friends we consider "Fishing Buddies". They are those special persons who fish with you, drink with you and tolerate your frustrations when you loose those big fish because of stupid mistakes.

Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to have developed a very special relationship with a very few men whom I would fish with on any given day. Without their friendship my life would have been much more hollow. Unfortunately, life gets in the way and I do not get to see them very often nor fish with them, but when I do those times are priceless.

I will be leaving next week for my yearly trip to the Big Horn to see and fish with a lot of these guys. Many do this outing yearly but there are also be some new faces. I look forward to strengthening my old friendships and to developing some new ones. The one thing I do know is that not everyone has Idaho Fly "Fishing Buddies" like I do. I am forever grateful to them for the times we have spent together over the years, and I only hope we will be able to enjoy each others company for many years to come.

Fly fishing buddy Ronnie V.

Hard takes, tight lines and huge fish forever.
