Fly-Fishing, Idaho

For the dad who loves fly-fishing … book a rustic vacation by the bend of a river. Eastern Idaho’s Natural Retreats South Fork Lodge rests along the south fork of Snake River, the largest North American river that empties into the Pacific Ocean. It’s also one of the best places in the US for tailwater and dry fly fisheries.
