    In March we are headed to the Big Wood River.  Bert Williams will be hosting this outing. His email is bswilliams63@gmail.com if you have any questions.

    Bert has rented a house in Hailey for Thursday March 19 for 3 nights. The "First Eight" who register for this BVFF event and send him an email saying they would like to "Stay in the Hailey House" is welcome to share the expenses which will be less than $100 for all three nights. Bedrooms are limited so some will need to bring sleeping bags. Booked Sorry, please find your own accommodations and join us!

    Everyone else is welcome to join us on this outing and make their own accommodations. Here is a list of potential hotel accommodations. http://www.kayak.com/hotels/Hailey,ID-c21732/2015-03-19/2015-03-22

    We will plan to meet for our evening meals on both Friday and  Saturday nights. Please register online at BVFF.com so we can make a reservation.  Details will be provided to those registered for this event.

    Last year we were catching fish on size 16 or 18 parachute Adams. The local fly shops recommended rubber legs.


    A article in an old Northwest Fly Fishing Magazine that had the Big Wood as a feature article offered the following recommendation:

    “When fishing in the cold season, anglers should concentrate their efforts in the “soft” water areas, including  eddies, pools, and medium-speed, waist-deep runs. Foam lines, where midges collect are particularly productive, especially if an angler casts dry flies such as Griffith’s Gnat or Parachute Adams.

    Some of the most productive subsurface winter patterns include Glo Bugs, Serendipities, Pheasant Tails, Brassies, Copper Johns, and size 18, 20, and 22 blood midges. The most effective anglers hang those small midge imitations behind a larger Prince, Pheasant Tail, or Hare’s Ear Nymph. Woolly Buggers, Egg-Sucking Leeches, and rabbit-strip leeches work well during the winter, too.”
