Today at Jimmy’s we have watched the wind blow all day. It is supposed to subside tomorrow, lets hope that it does. This spring has been interesting, if the sun is shinning the wind has been blowing, otherwise it has been cold and raining or snowing. All of this means that we will have excellent water in August and September.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out our new online store we have some really good deals going on. The closeout section has a few different items with extremely good prices. You will not be able to find prices like this anywhere else. Take advantage of our closeout deals, they will not last long. We are continually working on the online store to grow our selection of merchandise. I will keep you all updated on the new additions to the store.

Don’t get to discouraged over the wind and the crappy spring weather. Salmon flies are on there way, It won’t be long now and we will all be casting huge sofa pillows to hungry trout along the banks.

Today our sales rep from Simms Fishing Products was in town to show us the new fall line for Simms gear and to talk to us about the new Streamtread Vibram sole wading boots. Up to this point I was really scepticle about the new rubber sole beause it didn’t feel sticky and gummy. After learning about the new Streamtread sole, and the extensive testing that went into developing this product, I can’t help but be very excited. Simms has always had a reputation for being the leader in fishing gear. They were the first company to offer a relief zipper for waders, and now they are leading the technology for wading boots. Over the next few Today at Jimmy’s Posts I am going to address the issue of Invasive species and how we can be intrumental in stopping the spreading of these organisms. I am also going to address what the fishing industry is developing to help as well.

We have been busy getting ready for summer time here at Jimmy’s. We have started into our runoff season, but don’t worry there is a lot of fishing oppertunities that still exsist in southeast idaho. Check our fishing reports for the local resevoirs and streams. I personally love the spring time because the high water on the South Fork and the Henry’s Fork forces me to explore other water to fish. I rekindle my love for warm water species like bluegill, crappie, and bass during this time of year. I grew up fishing for warm water fish on a spinning rod and it has been a blast learning to catch these fish on the fly. As spring continues and the rivers get high look for oppertunities to catch some nice fish. Come ask us at the shop and we will be able to point you in the right direction.

Spring is officially here! The temperature was up to 70 degrees yesterday. Don’t be quick to pack away your snowblower yet we’re sure to have at least one more snow storm before summer is here. We have been really busy at the shop we are starting to receive shipments for the upcoming season. We have received our Cloudveil order. We now have a great selection of new shirts and pants for men and women from Cloudveil.

With this warm weather and the snow beginning to melt in the mountains, our streams and rivers will become high and dirty. There is still really good fishing in our local resevoiurs. These resevoirs host large fish that fun to catch. Also the warm water fishing will be picking up soon. Bluegill, and bass are a lot of fun to catch in the spring. If you haven’t had a chance to get out and fish stillwater come into the shop and we will be happy to get you headed in the right direction. If your favorite fishing hole is too high and mighty, try something new, or come back to an old favorite pastime.

We have been getting a lot of new merchandise in the shop as spring continues to try and wake up in the Idaho Falls area. We have received some more tying materials. Raccoon, White Fox, Indigo Fox, and Grey Fox Tails. These are great for tying streamer patterns like Clouser Minnows.

We have also received a large shipment of an instructional fly tying book by Skip Morris, “Fly Tying Made Clear & Simple.” This book retails for $19.95, but we have received a great deal from the publisher and have it marked down to $9.95. This is a great book that has very detailed instructions and photographs that will assist the beginning fly tier or a seasoned fly tier. This book is responsible for teaching many people as they learned how to tie flies.

We have also recieved a Columbia spring order. We have new patterns and colors for the Mens Bonehead shirts. We also have new Columbia mens Aruba 3 Pants. In the womens clothing line we have a new assortment of colors in the Eddyline shirt. We also have recieved the Eddyline Roll up Pant. All of our Columbia clothing has sun protection, and has a well technical design for fishing and outdoor use.

Around 6:30 this morning it started snowing in Idaho Falls. These photo’s were taken at 8:30am. There is a little over 2 inches of snow on the ground, and its still coming down!

April Snow April Snow

For those of you who don’t live in Idaho this is what an typical Idaho Spring day may consist of. If we don’t have snow, we have clear skies and 50mph wind. Its all good, snow in the spring means cold water and Pale Morning Duns in August! All though most of us are anxious to get out and catch some trout after a long winter. Mother Nature likes to give us one or two storms like this one to remind us the Salmon stonefly hatch will not be coming early this year!

Also we are signing up people for workshops, and selling Banquet tickets.The expo is an exciting time and seems to get everyone pumped up for the upcoming fishing season.

We got some new colors of fly foam in today. These new colors will be great for chernobyl ants, stoneflies, hoppers and other dry flies.

Jimmy’s is proud to introduce our own line of fly floatant. “Home Brew,” is a silicone based floatant that is temperature stable liquid. It is easy to apply and does not leave an oil slick. We also have a dry shake, and a classic floatant that resembles gink. Home Brew is produced in the basement of our very own fly shop. One would find these operations right next to the bobbers, dumbbell weights, swivels, and some old rusty Eagle Claw bait hooks. Unfortunately we are unable to give public tours due to industry, and trade secrets. Just trust us when we tell you that it is beautiful sight to behold.

We are continuing to get closer and closer to the 16th Annual East Idaho Fly Tying/Fly Fishing Expo and Banquet. This event will be held on April 17-18, 2009 at the Shilo Inn in Idaho Falls. This event is a really fun weekend. The expo features fly tiers from all over the United States and some from different countries. There are workshops, and classes that focus on tying flies, and fly fishing. They also offer a complete womens program on both days. Click here to go to the website and check out all the activities for the Expo. As always Jimmy’s will have a booth set up with our latest in fly tying merchandise. Be sure to come by and say hello.
