|Big Horn River - Idaho Fly Fishers Association|
Annual Meeting - September 10-14, 2014
|Late summer MT snow - 9/11/14|
Caleb (The Sous Chef)
Greg (The Coors Man)
Jorge (The Columbian)
We had another great meeting at Absaraka Lodge in Fort Smith, MT and Zoe and Dave were wonderful hosts as usual. There were two mishaps this year. First and most important, someone has apparently been screwing with the water flows and this fishery, one of THE best in the lower 48, was definitely not fishing as well as usual. Second, even though we started on 9/11, it actually had the audacity to SNOW in Montana that first day. Can you believe that?
|FP - OK - Fish On!|
The fish sizes were almost as good as usual, but the numbers were definitely down. All in all, we all really had a good time. Unfortunately, BO and Bobo had a family emergency and had to leave early. A text from BO the day after they departed, mentioned how much they missed particularly the Hopper's Cajun cooking. Strange they didn't mention the comradery and late night (everyone was in bed by 10 pm) poker. Unfortunately, as with last year, FP had to re-enter into "gamblers anonymous" as soon as he touched down back in OK. But at least he brought fudge again this year from the WORLD FAMOUS FUDGENOMICS in Norman, OK.
|Cold! Morning mist over Big Horn|
Select photos of our trip are shown. Unfortunately, we were unable to get a group shot this year due to the early departure of some of our members, but this will be first on our agenda at next year's meeting. If you have a need to join a fly fishing organization with some great people and would like to meet us for our annual trip next year in Montana, please contact me at IDFFA or at the email address listed below.
