Saturday will be the night of the raffle, some short welcome speeches and some music by Shakey and anyone else who wants to bring some live music. Dave_W has committed to paint a picture, but I am not sure what else may be involved in the raffle. If any wants to donate a prize, I am sure that will be appreciated. All donations will be properly recognized so if you or someone you know is in the business and wants to put up a prize, they can write it off as a business expense.

Just so it is known, only group expenses are paid from raffle proceeds (pavilion and coffee service, etc.), and a remaining balance is donated to a worthy fly fishing related charity.

Got here yesterday. Fished spring last night, heavy dun hatch right at dark. Didnt last long. Got 2.

Today hit a brookie stream from 11:30-2. Got 8. Went to spring from 3:30 till dark. Got 9. So 17 on the day, all on dries, despite trying nymphs and streamers. Spring is high but fishable. Focus on the edges, risers inches from shore behind edge rocks and in eddies. Nobody else was catching but i had slow and steady action all afternoon and evening.

No spinners last 2 nights.

Hey if anyone is planning to bring community grilling meats for the evening festivities , let it be known that there os only one small grill in the pavillion. Plenty of electrisical holes though for crock put delights. So if someone could bring another or two that would be appreciated. Should be lots of fun.

Bring your rubbers.

Okay - time for recap and reports...

The weather proved better than many had anticipated with much of the precip at night or just in the form of showers or drizzle.

Nevertheless many of the regular destination streams were blown and the old reliable Jam Plan of hitting brookie streams and Spring Creek was in affect for many folks. Fishing results were a mixed bag but overall pretty decent based on what I heard.

Speaking for myself, it was tough and the two evenings I spent on Spring Creek revealed very few bugs and even fewer risers. On Saturday afternoon, Dave, Tom, Maurice, and I, hit a smaller mixed ATW/Class A with some good results, but Spring Creek in the evening was a bust. On my way home today I hit a few of my favorite spots but they were all blown out or rolling - shoulda stayed on the mountain creeks.

The highlight of the 2018 Jam was Aducker's catch, which I'll let him (or Pcray) explain. Pat's probably still working out the probability of such an outcome.

Overall a fun time, as usual. Pics to follow...

I enjoyed myself greatly and it was pretty much non-stop since arrival. Just as soon as I got there, Maurice hit me up for some fishing on Spring Creek. I ended up with 5 over 8 that Friday. Saturday, I went over to the Feathered hook by using the GPS on my phone. Which the route took me on back trails of non-paved roads. Then it was back to Spring Creek a bit further down from Paradice where I ended up with 2 of 4 hookups. I also got stuck in the mud and almost went in face first. and Saturday Night was good to me. You guys actually let me play my guitar. This was like my first real performance outside of my realm (house). Hope you all enjoyed it. Maybe next Jam I have some lyrics to go with my home brew.
Now who stole my blue "pariste removal area" sign?

Past experience told me to not rely on GPS in that area. First time I went to a jam (Hemlock Acres), I knew where I needed to go, but the stupid GPS told me to "make a legal U-turn."

Out of curiosity I decided to follow the GPS instructions. It sent me back into the town I just left, then make a right. I followed that narrow but paved road for awhile past some Amish farms, and it eventually came back out on the same road a few hundred yards from where I did my legal U-turn.

Would have been a short trip.

My guess is one of the moderators took it because it had a bad word on it.

Enjoyed myself, as always. Was there tues - sunday. 2 good nights, 2 fair nights, 1 pretty bad night fishing wise. Great seeing everyone. Saw a couple of bears too, which is always cool.

I'm told i have to tell story, so here goes.

Saturday evening i quit fishing, took my box off, and realized my license was no longer attached. Wondered when and where i lost it. Saturday night, after the raffle, Maurice announced he had one more item and was gonna auction it off. And pulled out my license. Turned out Aducker nymphed it up from the bottom of Spring Creek. It took a pheasant tail? if memory serves, lol. Had resided on stream bottom for at least a day, maybe more, based on where he caught it. What are the chances? I've been re-united with my license and i thank Aducker, and I'm glad i could give the mods a laugh. Too bad he couldnt get it to rise to a dry fly.
