Subject: Fishing
 
I would like to join your association. I tried via your web page but it didn't work. I would love to hook up with on a fishing expedition on one of our beautiful north Idaho rivers. Please contact me at ****@allwallinc.com   Thanks Dan

My reply: Please send some bio information so the membership can consider your request,..... (or something like that.)

Then received from Dan (The Wall):

IdahoAngler,
 
I am 57 years old, married 27 years. We have no children. Born and raised in Michigan..... I spent several years after high school in the mountains of Oregon..... Spent time working in Wyoming oil fields, logger in Michigan. Eventually moved to Texas ..... then moved to Bartlesville, OK ..... where I met my wife Kim.
 
I always wanted to get back to the Northwest ..... (so we eventually) built our (existing house) on 29 acres of forest on the East side of Lake ..... (ID).....

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

Dan's dog Milo. He'll fit right in too!
Response for a IDFFA Membership Committee Person:  

He sounds like he might fit right in with us.  Please tell him we need additional information (Dan, ignore this request - he was just kidding).  We need  a picture of his dog on the pontoon and we will give his application some serious consideration at the next committee meeting. Oh yes, and the 100 dollar annual fee (This is to pad his personal account - we have no fee yet)! Sent to my address of course.

Kevin (Shotgun) - Oklahoma

I think these guys are taking us too seriously!

IdahoAngler (aka YSF) to Dan: Sorry Dan, these guys are a bunch of goofballs. Your are in the IDFFA even though one of the membership committee persons (we just formed this committee) has not yet weighed in. The lager just happens to be my baby brother Glen (Falls from Boats) - SC, who really did fall out of a boat (I pushed him) as a teen. And by the way, my dog is named Milo as is yours.

Golden on left is my Milo. White one on right belongs to "My Boss".

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.

BWO here, but looks very similar to Brown Drake--just smaller.



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.
