Simpson Plan

Posted in General on March 13, 2021 by flyfishersofidaho

I am urging all of our FFI members to write (by E mail) Senators Crapo and Risch and Congressmen Fulcher and Simpson to support Simpson’s plan that includes the removal of the four lower Snake River dams. I have studied the issue very carefully for years and know the science behind Simpson’s plan. The removal of those dams is the ONLY way that our salmon runs will be saved. The opposition propaganda put out by groups like the Idaho Farm Bureau is pure BS!

Please take a few minutes out of your day to contact these persons and please thank Congressman Simpson for his political courage!

Oct Knot of the month

Posted in General on October 8, 2020 by flyfishersofidaho

Hello hope things are stable for all. Here is the knot of the month it’s the ever popular blood knot, great for connecting two different types and thicknesses of line. Due to the covid 19 we will not be doing the roadside cleanup until further notice, stay safe and try to get out for some fishing. D.S.
