Calvin Fuller with a tidewater Dean River Steelhead.
Tucked away in the Northern Idaho's panhandle is a rich and vibrant growing community of Sandpoint. Sandpoint, located on the banks of Lake Pend Oreille is in the heart of a rich hunting and fishing community. Surrounded by lush forest and healthy lakes, the opportunities for the outdoorsman are vast. World record Gerrard Rainbow and Lake Trout and an array of warmwater species inhabit the local lakes while the local creeks hold Westslope Cutthroat, Bull Trout and Rainbow Trout. Its location is also key being close to neighboring systems like the Clark Fork, Kootenai and Cour De Alene. Hunting opportunities include elk, moose, woodland caribou, mule and white-tailed deer, cougar, black bear and bighorn sheep. Sounds like fun don't it?
Calvin Fuller and Tom Anderson owns and operates Sandpoint Outfitters in Ponderay. They offer both fly tying and fishing classes and can keep you up to date on the local fishing and hunting opportunities in the area. Keep them in mind when you are in Northern Idaho.
Calvin recently entered the blogging world with Chrome Tails. Chrome Tails will allow you to follow him, friends and family as they travel the world in pursuit of its fish and game in exotic and beautiful locations. I am still envious of his Sustut trip he took years ago with his father Jim, not to mention their recent trip to Tierra Del Fuego. These guys really know how to live right and their travels are a worthy read indeed.
