Then received from Dan (The Wall):
Kim has spent years working with dog rescues and we currently have 8 dogs of our own. My hobbies include deer and elk hunting, golf, and of course fly fishing.I spend most of my vacation time fly fishing or elk hunting. I have floated on my Bucks Bag Pontoon on many of Idaho's and Montana's rivers, usually with my fly fishing and camping companion, my dog "Milo ". He hikes the rivers and floats on the back of the pontoon down the rivers. I would say the St Joe would be my home water. I spend a lot of time down there hunting, hiking, fishing.
I'm traveling to Bull Lake, Montana next weekend for a four day camping and fishing trip with some neighbor friends. They will fish the lake. I hope to float the Bull River. Not sure what kind of shape it will be in. I haven't fished or floated it before. But have traveled the road and always wanted to.Maybe fish some creeks in the area.
I hope to be invited into your special group and be able to meet and spend some time fishing with you and the other members. Thanks Dan

Please let me know your last name for our non-published records and your phone numbers. We will never intentionally publish any of your personal info. I live only about 30 miles (as the eagle flies) due north of you. Actually when you go to the Bull, you will drive right by my house. Here are some blog posts about the Bull River (1, 2, and 3). The Bull tends to be one of my most popular blog searches.
The best place to launch on the Bull is about 3.5 miles above the 8 mile bridge - take out at the bridge. Long float though about 4-6 hours. The launch point is a canoe launch on the left as you head north toward the lake. The water here is always cold for it does not come from the lake. Just below the launch about 200 yards there is a sweeping river curve to the left. The best fishing in the river is here with a very large (#6-8) Brown Drake hatch in the mornings around 10 am Montana time.
If you will give me a call (208-xxx-xxxx) sometime I'll go fishing with you. The above is a cutthroat from the Bull on a Brown Drake.

PS-New member Fly Fishing Justin (TBD) - Washington may be looking for a partner to the St. Joe in August. He is the son of an old college friend from Georgia and IDFFA member. If you can't find his info, let me know. Look HERE for information.
Hard takes, tight line, screaming reels and have a great time Idaho fly fishing. Email or call any time.
