Here are a few highlights:
In January we exhibited our booth at the Boise Valley Fly Fishers Expo, good job. Look for us again this year. We kicked off our season with our OPEN HOUSE EVENT held at Cabela’s in May. A special thank you to Cabela’s for hosting our classes and workshops. We especially enjoyed the opportunity to give featured presentations to the local fly fishing clubs in Boise and in the surrounding area. Our Outreach Programs were very successful this year for companies holding their corporate meetings and events in the community. The Henkel Corporation and The Bayer CropSicences Division enjoyed the Fly fishing Team Building events they booked with DCI. Thank you to our team of casting Instructors that enjoyed themselves as well. We couldn’t offer the quality or individual instruction without their assistance.We were also able to share our expertise with several men’s ministry groups in the local area. The Solid Rock Outfitters are a large group of outdoor enthusiast who enjoy fly fishing and the Life Church Men’s Ministry Man Camp Event held in Cascade, Idaho were all able to enhance their casting skills.My wife and I were blessed to be able to attend the FFF Federation of Fly Fishers Conclave in West Yellowstone in August. I am currently going through their certification program and have really enjoyed the adventure. In conjunction to the seminars and events we experienced, I was fortunate enough to co-instruct a single-hand spey casting workshop with Carl Zarelli.
We will be expanding our workshops, classes, and events this year due to the ever increasing response of fly fishing interests locally, in the valley, and outside the state. Along with our continued Beginning Fly Fishing and Casting Classes, our Intermediate Fly Fishing and Casting Classes, Advanced Single-hand and Single-hand Spey Classes, and Casting the Spey Classes, we will be introducing our Complete Angler’s School. We will be posting this on the website early this spring. We are planning many events this year and you can follow us on our website, as well as Facebook for upcoming events in 2012.Our year will start out in January at the Western Idaho Fly Fishing Expo January 13 & 14, 2012. The Beginning Fly Tying Classes will start the first of January.We are looking forward to 2012. Hope to see you along the way or on the river.
