New IDFFA Member Jay F.



Kodiac, AK Humpy 2004
We welcome new IDFFA member Jay F. to our "Merry Band of Anglers". First my reply to his email follows:
 
"Nice note Jay. We (IDFFA members) have been called a lot of things. But "merry band" is a first. Maybe we should convert from sour mash to mead. Stay in touch. Add those names I gave to you to your email list. They'll fish with you. So will I if you ever make it to ID/MT. I live in the ID panhandle 15 miles to MT, 30 miles from WA and 60 miles from Canada, BC. PS-Welcome to the IDFFA (Idaho Fly Fishers Association). You will not regret it." 

Now Jay's email:

Hi YSF,
 
"I am thrilled to be invited to join your Merry Band of Anglers!"

< I do not have permission to post his exact email, so let me paraphrase. > Jay is in his mid-50's, retired from the Air Force and was stationed all over including Germany x 2 and Oklahoma. He received his college degree while on active duty. He now works as a quality engineer in Indianapolis, IN. Jay has also fished, not only for trout all over this country and Europe, but he likes other species as well. The retired Master Sergeant is looking for others to join him in his fly fishing adventures.

His mom sounded to be quite the hoot and she was very proud of her family. One funny thing she would tell people about Jay was "he's so conservative he didn't know DamnDemocrats was two words until he was 14 years old." Sort of describes other IDFFA members as well. Jay, welcome to YOUR Idaho Fly Fishing Association.

Jay's response to the "nonrefundable" application fee one of our smart ass members tried to impose: "I hope you will waive that fee - just like it being non-refundable I just found out my wife ran off with a Transvestite Midget from Prague (after the Kolache Festival I knew something wasn't quite right). He's (or is it "she's") threatening to return the wife so I have to pay to keep that from happening and am short on funds. I am sure you understand? Right?"

 
Hard takes, tight lines and many new fly fishing adventures with the IDFFA.
