Idaho can locate you more centrally to everywhere in the NW. But there are no fish here.

Look at their Yurts and reserve ahead.

Re: Does anyone else have these piles on their desk?

No, I have piles of tying materials all over my desk. Lots of odds and ends. Now mostly just small bits I don't feel like putting away.
