Tying the Surgeon’s Knot.

Posted in General on May 22, 2020 by flyfishersofidaho

Hello all, forgive me for getting behind the Corona curve. With the lack of fishing I’ve lost my sense of time. The Surgeon’s Knot is a well used knot for tying tippet to your leader with an added video bonus of attaching your leader to your fly line for all the new folks!!!

Hello all, hate to be the bearer of more bad news but Duck Valley is shutting down until April 30 and may extend past this date due to the Cornhole virus.

Our monthly meeting is Thursday March 19 at 6:30. This will be our last meeting at the Boise Fish and Game office for a while. There will be no monthly meeting for April, due to our fish out at Duck Valley. Future monthly meetings will be at the Nampa Fish and Game office.
At this months meeting we will discuss the Sportsman Show and the success our club had. A special thanks to all of those who worked our booth and assisted with our presentation. For all of those who donated flies for the fish and those who obtained items for the raffle, thank you.
The March meeting will have a presentation on fishing Duck Valley. Joe and Brad will provide us with their knowledge on the location. For those of us in the club that have not been to Duck Valley or have limited experience with lake fishing, will find the information extremely valuable.
In the mean time, stay healthy and stay away from

FFI Booth 2020

Big Fish

Hello all, just want to say thank you to all in our FFI organization for the hard work and dedication to a super successful sportsman show this year. We really scored with the raffle tickets this go round thanks to Ballard Larsen’s carney skills,he could sell the Coronavirus and make a profit. We have many contributor’s to thank, first as always David Beal for his donation and allowing us to participate in the event year after year, Christi and Ballard Larsen for scoring the Luciano’s gift basket which by the way was the number one hit, we will remember that next year, Randy Rook and his company Electrical Wholesale Supply Co for the Milwaukee Heated jacket,the Warhawk Air Museum for the Family membership and the FFI flyrod we donated along with the Big Fish. What a great way to start the year.                                                                                                                                          Thanks again D.S.
