Hi Idaho TU leaders,

My friend and her husband (former Teton Valley residents) started a saltwater fishing company in Baja a couple of years ago. She sent along an offer that she said I could pass along to TU staff, but also to TU members! Please pass this along to you chapter members, and mention that you are a TU member for this awesome discount. Check out their website listed below.

Tight lines,


Special TU Discount

We want to extend a special invitation to Trout Unlimited employees to have a 25% discount off our Camp Roosterfish package. We are offering this invitation in an effort to introduce ourselves and to give a little back to an organization that does so much for the fisheries locally. We want to fill up the last few remaining spots on the roster and have a big inaugural kick-off for our first Camp Roosterfish.

With the 25% discount, the package cost, based on double occupancy, is $1500 per person. Basically our cost. It includes: 6 nights lodging, all meals, five days guided fly fishing, fishing license, boat charters, box of hand-tied flies, and airport transfers. Our sessions are May 23-29 and May 30-June 5. We also have a few spots open on an early unadvertised session that runs May 16-22.

Here's a description of Camp Roosterfish 2009:

At Bay Anglers we have designed special Spring sessions devoted to the Pacific’s famed roosterfish, aka papa gallo. Roosterfish action on Baja´s East Cape heats up in May and June, so it's a perfect time to spend five days pursuing roosters from the beach and from an inshore panga.

· Learn techniques, rigging and patterns for roosters

· Get to know their behavior

· Improve your fly-casting distance and accuracy

· And, oh yeah, fly fish in the stunning waters of the Sea of Cortez for one of Baja´s prize-fighting gamefish.

From the Beach - 3 Days

The Beach Hop days take you to some of the best roosterfish beaches in the area with your professional American fly-fishing guide/instructor to stalk roosters. Learn what it takes to hook-up, stay in the fight, and land this species. The mode of transportation is an air-conditioned 4WD vehicle. You and your guide will be dropped off at access points, and the truck and support crew will meet you at designated spots along the way with shade, refreshments, and a great lunch.

From the Panga - 2 Days

The Inshore Panga days target roosterfish along the near shore waters of the East Cape in a super panga with one of the local fly fishing savvy captains and your fly fishing guide/instructor. You´ll learn how to engage roosters from the boat, bring them in, and release them back to battle another day.

Accommodations are at the beautiful Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort in Spa Buena Vista. Package prices are based on double occupancy in a standard room.
