Day #2 of our 12 Gift for the Holidays. Today’s gift idea is a Buff.

A buff is usually used as sun protection while fishing, but it has several different uses. A face mask while skiing powder, a hat, dog collar and my favorite, disguising ones identity while robbing a Bank. Whatever you decide to use a Buff for there is no argument that they make great Christmas presents. We just got a new shipment in with may different patterns for Men and Women.

Well its that time again when we feature our “12 gifts of Christmas.” Be sure to show this list to your loved ones so they know what to get you when they come to the shop looking for some Holiday gifts.

I am going to keep this pretty simple. Today I want to feature an item that has been fairly popularfor the last year and a half.

Patagonia Hats! We have lots of different styles and types. Our most popular has been the Patagonia logo inside a trout silhouette. We have many different styles, Trucker Hats, Traditional ball caps and beanies.They all wear great and only you can determine what style your prefer. We have lots of these hats in stock and they make great stocking stuffers. Don’t forget T-shirts we have a good selection of those as well…but maybe I should save those for another day.

Next to chasing pheasants in the fall I really enjoy fishing for steelhead. I did a quick run up to Salmon Saturday to see if we could find some fish. I left early that morning and got up to Salmon and found a run down river of North Fork. We hooked 4 fish and landed 3 in that run. We fished 4 other runs that day and fished till dark, but didn’t find any more fish. The hot fly was the Blue and Green Hobo spey fished with a RIO 10′ T-11 Mow Tip.

I had 2 pieces of equipment that helped make this day so much better. I have been using the Patagonia Aluminum Bar Wading boots. I have spoken of these boots in the past, but they are so good and honestly I don’t prefer anything else on my feet in a slick river like the Salmon. The second piece was my Patagonia Nano Jacket. This jacket is so warm, packable and makes the perfect layering piece under your wading jacket.

 

This is pretty late in the season for me to still be steelhead fishing. However the weather has held up and the water temps have yet to plummet below 40 degrees yet. There is something really cool about catching a steelhead in Idaho. However this time of year it’s so easy to just stay at home and think about catching fish. I have found when I do go out it’s always a good time and I find I am rewarded with a few fish and solitude on the river.

We at Jimmy’s have accumulated a fly-fishing experience unequaled in this part of the Greater Yellowstone Region. Yes, we target the most visited waters here, then in our fishing reports offer top grade information for having success fishing these.  In addition, we continuously visit and fish quality but lesser known regional waters throughout the season. Many of these waters, still or moving, are “off the beaten path.”  Others are on the beaten path but overlooked  because of proximity to most visited waters or offer good winter fishing.   Through this “visit as many as possible” approach we can provide solid information for planning your next trip in the region.  This approach also helps reveal the nearly endless choice of quality waters available in the region to visiting and local fly-fishers.  Thus a few times a month this winter we will offer web site articles featuring lesser known bodies of water offering a good measure of solitude, wildlife viewing, and scenic beauty in addition to great fishing.  Look for information within on best time to visit, suitable fly patterns, tackle choice, and directions.  And do not hesitate to contact us if you want more information on any water we discuss.
