Is it a private secret, or can you share ? You knew someone would ask.



Don't fish places where there are fish that can eat you.

We're good to go.

We can get into the hall at 8:30 to set up the tables and chairs, and that gives the tyers an hour to get their tying stuff ready. They should be ready to start tying at 10AM sharp.

We'll have coffee and donuts to start out. Feel free to bring any food or drinks you'd like to have other than that. We'll also have spring water on ice available throughout the day. Mrs Delta Dog is sending a tray of her famous cookies along.

Any spectators are welcome, and additional demo tyers can just show up last minute if you want to. You can even show up any time during the day, and we'll fit you in to the rotation of tyers.

Hokendauqua TU will be there to do the beginner instruction. If you know of anyone that could benefit from some quality tying instruction, bring 'em!

Dinner is at 6:30PM at Riverwalck Saloon. They don't take reservations anymore, but please mention you're with paflyfish when you get there so they can seat us in the same section.

Looking forward to a fun and educational day!

H.A.

I had a good time today at the Jam. Nice to see people face to face again and pick up some more knowledge for the next time I can sit at the bench.

Mike, I am definitely going to try my hand at those stimulator patterns. If mine come out one third as nice as yours, I'll be pleased.

Thanks to all the tiers who demonstrated their ties and shared their skills.

Dave

Thanks to all for another successful event.

We made a sizable donation to the Lehigh Gap Nature Center through the results of the raffle - thanks to all who contributed prizes!

This year, we had TWO complete tying kits donated, and through discussion with those who got them donated, it was decided to pick the winners, rather than have them go to members who already had tying setups - this was likely if done through the raffle.

The winners of the tying kits were Stagger Lee, and jhedge. I'm sure those kits will be put to good use, and we'll surely witness Stagger's progress on the tying forum.

In addition to the members that donated raffle prizes, I'd like to thank one of our site sponsors - The Sporting Gentleman - for their generous donations. They donated literally hundreds of dollars worth of prizes for this event. Please show your appreciation for their generosity by supporting this first class fly shop!

I'd also like to thank J.Stockard for their donation of a gift certificate as well. This is the second year they've come through for us in supporting this event.

All in all, it was a great time, and promoted camaraderie, and sharing of information and skills among the attendees.

I'll post a slide show of the event and the flies tied as soon as I get it done.

H.A.

One of the really cool side stories of this event is the story of a very special young man.

Two years ago at the tying jam, one of our member's sons was given a box full of tying equipment and supplies by our own Krayfish. It was a very generous thing to do, and clearly showed the goodwill and desire to help that is typical of our members here on PAFF. This young man also received some great beginner's instruction at the Jam from the guys at Hokendauqua TU. He tied his first ever flies that day!

Last year, that young man (Ben Fedeli - his Dad is "Hack" on our forum) showed us some of the flies he had tied in the past year, and gave them to some of us. They were tied really well! He also was the recipient of SkyBlue's generosity, when Rick gave him the awesome tying bench csoult donated to the event, and that Rick had won in the raffle.

This year,Ben felt confident enough in his new found skills to do a demo tie at the Jam - his own tie, the "Pink Tag".

And so, we here at PAFF have helped get a fine young man into what looks like a lifelong adventure in flyfishing/flytying. Kudos to his Dad Paul (Hack) for supporting his new found skills, and raising a polite young man that is enjoying the outdoors, and not spending all his time playing video games.

The guys at Hokendauqua TU are most impressed with Ben's progress! Looking at the VP of Hokendauqua TU as Ben tied, I saw a bit of tears in his eyes.

Way to be, Ben!

Here's his demo fly:
