New Business It has come to the attention of the Idaho TBF of very unbecoming behavior of some local anglers. As an organization, we pride ourselves with our sportsmanship and integrity. That being said, the Idaho TBF will not tolerate or allow any angler to fish our qualifiers or opens who harass other members of the TBF community or the many partners, sponsors or local businesses that support us. Additionally, those Anglers will be barred from applying or renewing their Idaho TBF membership,

Next meeting Thursday October 18, 7PM Canyon Marine Minutes submitted by Bobbie Littlefield.
