The Idaho Fly Fishers Associaton began with our 1st group trip to the Big Horn in 2012. As you will notice, there were 8 of us (pictured below right).
The IDFFA (Idaho Fly Fishers Association) is a word of mouth organization and has been mostly formed by friends of friends. At least we all have the same passion for Idaho Fly Fishing. We hale from Idaho, Louisiana, Florida, Washington, Kansas, Missouri, California via Idaho, South Carolina, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, and soon most of the other states. Our organization has now grown to 26 members mostly through the efforts of our newly appointed social director Kevin (Shotgun) from Oklahoma. Kevin is not only social director, but poker director as well.
Membership in the IDFFA is FREE for now, and eligibility into our organization is as follows:
1/ A passion for Idaho fly fishing is a must.
2/ Must be a male between 30 & 89 (Our wives and girlfriends insist, however female attendance is tolerated with advanced notice). Females potentially interested in joining, see #9 below.
3/ Means to be able to attend one annual Idaho fly fishing adventure to the tune of approximately $1,500-$2,000 per year. This usually includes guide, food, transportation and housing.
4/ A poker passion (current members are an exception if you can cook) and the means to loose up to $100 per nightly session.
5/ A real love for a really good homemade or store bought sour mash.
6/ Good enough health to be propped upright in the middle of a river or drift boat.
7/ A UN / PW for Famous-Smoke.com.
8/ A referral from an existing member or very famous person of good character--good luck with this one!
9/ We might consider female affiliates with prior group approval--but most really would prefer not to join once they see the composition of the organization. Most members are ONLY good for Idaho fly fishing and really nothing else.
Annual trips will be posted online through this blog such as Fly Fishing 2016. Please visit here often for updates. You can never tell when one of us may die and a vacancy open up. PS-We are looking for some younger members, for many of my friends are geriatric.
Hard takes and bent rods to you all.
