The weather looks great outside but the temperature still reminds us that it is winter here in Idaho Falls. Most of the snow has melted in town but there is still a lot of snow on the ground in the surrounding areas. Each day we get closer and closer to spring. I have noticed that the spring winds have started to blow on a more regular basis. If you are not familiar with the Idaho’s windy springs let me just say when the Idaho wind blows…man it sucks! No pun intended. Despite the high winds in the spring we have some awesome pre-runoff fishing. Call the shop for some up to date reports, or check out the latest fishing report our fishing report page.
We recieved two new tying books. Dave Hughs has published a great book titled, Nymphs for Streams & Stillwaters. This book has a very detailed description of nymphs and tying patterns. We also received a new book from Randall Kaufman, titled Fly Patterns. The Kaufmanns have put together a collection of patterns into a dictionary style book. This book has recipes and a color photos of almost every fly pattern invented. Kaufmann has published many fly tying books that are very informative. Come check out his latest!
