I'm an Addict
Good day gentlemen and women. I just got done fishing the Boise river near town all day for a single bite and enjoyed every second of it. It was cold for Boise standards, but not too big a deal to suck and bite the ice off the end of the rod a few times for one more cast.

I don't have a point of this post except to say, I've enjoyed and benefited from the info on this board in the two years I've lived in Boise; you could call me one of those leachers, thou who hath not put in valuable info, but has extracted much. I want 2013 to be my New Years resolution to give back to the online angling community.

I also want people living everywhere to never neglect their angling opportunities as I did while living in Coeur d'Alene for 5 years, so close to the Clearwater steelhead and passed it by to play in the whitewater and so many lakes with Chinooks n pike prolifically dominating the waters. I still fished the region, but never seriously and thoughtfully as I should have. I foolishly thought life was about business and nothing else.

I grew up and lived most of my life 5 miles from the proclaimed Blue Ribbon trout stream, Rock Creek in Western MT, just east of Missoula. My weapon of choice as a sprouting young angler? Telescoping pack rods, always in the dirtbike bag and the pocket fisherman took down several 20" Browns from a one Man Ducky raft. As a kid I did cook a few Rainbow lunches on a round rock next to that little river known as Clark's Fork. I now have a 14' self Bailing Maravia which I'm currently adapting a back-trolling motor to the frame to hang with the jet sleds for big boy fishin...

One cannot spend enough time on the water, cherish every minute.

Cheers.

Wow! Two Boise area "newbies" in a week. As the Boise area moderator, my job is somewhat of a lonely one!! Maybe we can build up our numbers to match eastern Idaho! A nicely worded introduction. Welcome, and tight lines. Mike
