For the first time in what seems like awhile, the sun is out and shining today. If it wasn’t so windy it might have even been a great day to hit the water, but with that said, there are plenty of great fishing days ahead. The month of February is flying right by and before you know it, we will be into March and some spring fishing. Those beautiful spring bluebird days where if nothing else, it is just as nice to get outside as it is to fish. Here at the shop, we are looking forward to another amazing fishing season here in Eastern Idaho. Last year was one for the books, and we are extremely grateful for all of the support we received from everyone who stopped by.
Along with the new year, there have also been some new changes here at Jimmy’s. Everet Evans, a.k.a. “Fabio” permanently moved to California where he continues to guide for Mako Sharks and Tuna. We will miss Everet, and we wish him the best of luck on the high seas. With Everet having moved, Josh Clark who just returned from a mission in Mexico, has once again started working in the shop. Josh worked here at Jimmy’s before leaving on his mission and is as excited as ever to be back. When you come into the shop, Josh will most likely be standing behind the register with a smile on his face waiting to greet and help you. Josh is an avid fisherman and fly tier. He is also a really nice person, so don’t hesitate to ask him a question if you need help with any of your fishing needs.
As for the rest of the staff, Jimmy, Barb, Bruce, Marty, myself, Tom, and even Miss Katie (the cat) are present and accounted for, and ready to help with all things fishing. Other than Everet leaving and Josh returning, things have remained normal here at the shop. Luckily, everyone has remained healthy and most of us have even been able to sneak in a winter fishing trip or two. Again, we are excited for this upcoming season and we look forward to longer days and warmer weather. These winter days won’t last forever, and those fish filled days are right around the corner.
