2nd Annual Fish N Chips Event

Hey guys and gals. This event went so well last year and we had such an incredible turn-out that I was asked to make it an annual event. So, let's get everyone thinking now about this year's event. It is organized by Heritage-Angler, Delta-Dog and myself. For those of you new to PAFF or who missed last year's event, this fits into our "Newbie" events calendar but all are welcome to attend. Last year Old Lefty dazzled everyone with his casting demo. I think he also gave some great pointers to anyone who wanted help.

The day starts with coffee and donuts followed by a morning of fishing concluding with our picnic lunch. We hold the event on the Little Lehigh at the Fly Shop parking area. Everyone volunteers to bring something and we just have a great time. Last year we did it in August and I see no reason to change this year. I'm thinking either Saturday, August 10th or the 17th.

More details to follow but I wanted to gauge interest to make sure we start planning early. Not sure we can top last year's event but hopefully the tricos will interest the fish this year. Last year the week before the actual event we had a dry run so to speak. We got a little rain Friday night and the water was off-color, tricos came off and the fish were hungry. The day of the event we got rain Friday night again to help the water, tricos came off again but this time the fish were really not all that hungry. Oh well, that is why they call it "fishing".

Anyway, post here if you are interested in coming and how many people will be with you. This is just to get a rough count, no one is committing at this point. About a month before the event, we'll start asking for details on what you'd like to bring for breakfast or the picnic.

We have already come up with a few conflicts for at least one of those dates plus I've been told we did it last year in July not August. Just keep an eye out for upcoming announcements about this event because in may occur earlier than 8/10.

The "Newbie Brush Up" event, date to be announced once we work out the details, is coming as well. Probably is late June but stay tuned.

Okay, based on some conflicts for August 10 and new plans that have come up for August 17, we are now looking at July 27 as the targeted date for Fish N Chips, The Sequel. I do believe we did it in July last year, so hopefully this date works well.

This is open to all PAFF members, family and friends. All we ask is that you bring something to share and come ready to enjoy, learn and/or help. Tricos should be on by then and weather hopefully will be okay. Mods and Dave are invited as our guests, so don't worry about bringing anything.

As we get closer, I'll start to prepare a list of who is coming and what they will bring.

We'll see if we can get one of our PAFF Experienced members to do a little program for us. Last Year Old Lefty did a great casting demo which was VERY well received by the group. So if any of our guys want to PM me to volunteer a short program to benefit our members, that would be greatly appreciated.

For anyone that attended last year, please PM me (or H-A or Dog)if you have comments on things we could do to improve the experience for everyone.

We met last year around dawn for coffee and donuts, fished the tricos and then started lunch around 11, with the program (if we have one) after lunch.

Look forward to seeing all of you,
Fox

July 27th should work for me and just have to confirm with wife. If all is good I will bring either burgers or dawgs depending on everyone's taste.

Looking forward to seeing everyone. If last year is a sign of this yearly event ... good times and good fishin!
