OK. We'll shoot for June 6, 7, 8 and 9th. Rooms might be hard to find that week so don't dilly dally on getting reservations. Tell the office that you're with the PAFF group or the JAM and they'll put all of us next to each other.

Kray - good on you for trying to herd us ffishing cats together. I'll be up there earlier in the month with some other buds, and if I link up with this mini-Jamboree, I usually base out of Roscoe since I'm a Beaverkill fancier (since the 50s, even).

les,

If you are going to be in Roscoe, I'm sure we'll make it over that way at least once during the get together. I think we are going to do luch at Raimondos one day and shoot the bull w/ Art Lee. When I talked to him in the fall, he sounded open to meeting the group and swapping fish stories. Thought that might be a pretty neat thing for us to do. Are you going to make it over to the Hancock area at all during that time? You are more then welcome to sit on the porch, light up your pipe and share a drink w/ us.

Kray, I really don't know if I'll make it. I'm dying to, but June is tough. Any time before July is reallllly tough. But I'll have to see.

ugh.

Jason,

Hope you can make it up once. Spring is much more interesting than the middle of summer. In case you missed the post, "your" pontoon was sold to a guy that lives on the WB. Sorry but it went to a good home and that boat loves that river anywho. Keep me posted or shoot a text if you can make it.

Darn! I cannot make it. I have a family vacation planned. For those of you on the fence about going to the Catskill Jam I can attest that it is a great time. The Capra Inn where you will most likely stay is awesome and the fishing is world class. As for the guys attending some are a little sketchy (; but they are some damn fine fisherman.

Fishing with Krayfish (Andy) opened my eyes to a new level of flyfishing on big water. If you've never fished the Big D be ready for an entirely different experience from the little limestoner fishing that most of us Pennsylvanians are used too. My first trip on the Upper Delaware I fished with an 8 foot 3 weight fly rod. Hook one big brown or bow on a flimsy little rod and your in trouble. Tippets of 7x and 8x are a joke on this river. Also make sure you have a big net. I am sure some chuckled at me with the little minnow net I had hanging off my back on my first two or three trips but I guess it was all I had.

I now carry two rods while I'm on the river both 9 foot or above and in five and six weights. I also spent a little extra on the reels and fly lines. I can honestly say that having the proper equipment on the Upper Delaware is a must and being prepared is absolutely necessary. The guys from the Jam have that experience and are willing teachers. If you go you will learn so much.

Nick

Nick,

That's too bad. Fadeaway, Webby and I are going up from June 4th through the 8th. We'll be staying at a house in Deposit and plan to meet up with the other guys in Hancock and hopefully at our place. Parkesburg is pretty close to us. We should at least get together and fish locally sometime.

I'm headin up April 28th. I'll be there for the whole week and fully expect to sore lip every fish within 10 miles of Hancock. lol! In June I'll head up Thursday. And Either me or Kray got a discounted calander. I think the 6th thru the 9th is a Wed-Sat? But maybe I'm wrong about that, but in the past two JAMs we stayed until Sunday. In any case I believe I'm staying until Sunday. Shane you can room with me. I pack lots of food/booze/fly tying material, but I'm sure you'll still be able to squeeze in to the room some where!

Where do you guys stay? I would like to come up, but I couldn't get there until Friday early evening at the earliest. I would be able to stay into the next week, however, as I would likely bring my RV. Is there a place nearby campground with full RV hook-ups? I would look it up, but I didn't see what town you are staying in. I've never been to the upper D, and would love to tag along fishing with somebody with experience if I can make it. Thanks for any input.
