To all PAFF members, family, and friends:

There will be a fly tying mini jam held on Saturday 12/17/11 from 1PM until 5PM.

This event will be held at the Lehigh Gap Nature Center - a beautiful new facility on the banks of the Lehigh River, near the intersection of Rt 873 and Rt 248. Information and directions to the Nature Center can be found here:

http://lgnc.org/

Tyers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend this event, and as usual, this event is free of charge. This will be a great opportunity to showcase your tying skills, help others learn your favorite patterns, and will allow everyone to improve their skills and learn new patterns and techniques.

We'll have tying space for at least 30 tyers, and room for spectators as well. Newcomers to the art of tying flies are encouraged to attend, and there will be an opportunity to practice on tying equipment that will be provided, as well as an instructor to teach basic techniques.

After the Jam, we'll be heading over to Riverwalck's Saloon for dinner and refreshments - we have an entire room reserved for us.

Check out the post in the Tying forum for further details on what to bring. Please sign up for this event in the post in the Tying forum, so we know who'll be attending and the flies being tied.

Looking forward to seeing old friends, and meeting new ones. This should be a really fun day!

H.A.

About 30 minutes. It is a beautiful facility and we are lucky they are allowing us to use it. Then again they owe Ha and kinda me a favor

Hi jwatts, and welcome to the forum.

This is not a commercial type event, but just a bunch of PAFF members, family, and friends that are getting together to enjoy a day of tying flies. It's a great opportunity to meet some of your fellow board members in person, and share and learn some tying skills and techniques.

There is nothing planned as far as selling anything, other than holding a raffle to dispense any remaining donated materials. The proceeds from this raffle will be donated to the Lehigh Gap Nature Center as a "thank you" for letting us use their beautiful new facility.

Hope to see you there!

H.A.
