Lets try to keep all discussion of this event in this thread in the Events forum.

This event is being co-hosted by pcray and myself. Pat can answer any questions as he sees fit. His input has had a major impact on what this event has become!

We need instructors for this event - prior year's instructors will be given their topics if desired, and we can always use up to 3 instructors for each topic.

Please sign up if you'd like to instruct, and what topic you'd like to do of the ones listed.

We can also add topics if anyone wants to do something different than the topics listed.

While there's no need for newbies, or even someone that just wants to brush up on some things to "sign up", it'd be nice to have a rough idea on how many plan on attending.

Let the games begin!

H.A.

HA, I have been waiting for this. I had so much fun last year. I will volunteer. Last year as you know I did entomolgy. Which I could do again. But I would really like to tie flys if possible. I found out at the tying jamb. I need more experience tying in public. Either way i'm in.

You and me both! One day.....

JT - If you could handle the Newbies, it'd free up GenCon to really let 'er rip.

GenCon - Feel free to do whatever you want at the vise. This I gotta see!

Cathy - I think you and djs would make a great team for station #1 - the "Lackawanna Connection". And don't even THINK about trying to pay for your lunch.


Here's what we have so far....

#1 - djs12354, CathyG
#4 - Volksnurse, GenCon, Tyger
#7 - Guest instructor - one of the best I've ever seen at this.

I would have loved to help, but it is youth fishing day. I will be taking the kids fishing.

Sorry 'bout that - we only had one choice of days, and this is it.

Feel free to stop by at any time (with the kids). They gotta eat too.

Nope, completely understand. If I can pull them away from the water I will, but they will be getting first crack the the Jordan fish. Lol should be fun.

If you are new to fly fishing, I highly recommend attending this event. I could surely use more tutoring from these guys and gals, but have a family obligation that day. These folks are all top notch people, and also a river full of knowledge.

I'd be glad to help, if there isn't a hidden event on the homefront calendar for that day. Maybe a reprise of #6 is in order..

I can't commit to anything more than a week out!!!!

J/K. Well, sorta. Let's say I intend to be there and am up for wherever you need me (cept tying, I suck at tying).
