JAM EVENT IDEAS


Here are some ideas for events at this year’s Jam:


LIVE FLY SWAP – Members tie and exchange flies at the Jam and guaranteed fish! Details are in the Announcement and Events topic.

STREAM / FLY FISHING REPORT – I will try to get a local shop(s) representative to talk to us about the streams, fishing and hatches in the area. More details will follow. If any member is willing to share their FF knowledge and wishes to speak or make a presentation to the group, contact me via PM.

FLY TYING DEMOS – We have a lot of talented tyers on the board. We also have a lot of beginners and intermediate tyers. Everyone is encouraged to bring their vise, tools and materials to the Jam and set it up at a table in the pavilion. This is a great opportunity for experienced tyers to share their skill and knowledge to the group. If you are a beginning tyer or just need help with some technique or pattern…DUH!…bring your vise! (free fly tying lessons!!). Beginners should not worry about bringing or not having a lot of materials, there should be plenty to share to get you started.

CASTING DEMOS - Again, PAFF has a lot of talented casters and FFers. I would like to set a time for members to meet for fly-casting demonstrations. If you’re a beginner or an intermediate casting looking to improve or learn some new tricks….DUH!…show up with your rod in hand! If any member wishes to help teach or demonstrate casting to the group, contact me via PM.

EQUIPMENT / TACKLE SWAP – Bring your junk vintage or new FF equipment, clothes or tackle. Maybe you can swap it out with another member for their junk stuff. You’re on your own.

LIVE ENTERTAINMENT - Join the PAFF BAND! If any member has a musical instrument and would like to bring it to entertain, feel free. One rule, no amps, microphones or loud instruments allowed! Shakey and his beer bottleneck slide provided some great entertainment last year.

If any member has any ideas on something they would like to share at the Jam, contact me via PM.

As we get closer to the Jam date, and things get firmed up, I will post a schedule of events.

I am willing to help as needed, but am probably only qualified for tying and swapping.

I was thinking of bringing my bass for some jamming, but since it's not acoustic I was thinking about bringing a 10 inch speaker practice amp. It's like a 15 watt amp and will in no way be louder than Shakey. If someone has an acoustic bass that would be better. I could bring my six string acoustic, but I feel that I am not good enough on a sixer to do Shakey's tunes any justice at all.

As far as tying goes, I will have all of my materials along, since I probably won't get to tie before I get there and am running short on flies already. We are under construction at the Boyer house and I will be losing my tying space to the new baby until next year when I get the attic finished, so my "tying demo" will be quite a necessity.

I'm not sure if afish is repeating something he learned from Rudy regarding amplified instruments or whether he just reasonably assumes that Rudy will not permit it, but it is possible that if a small amplifier is used and does not project sound much farther than a radio would, we can still get away with its use. I think this is why they make a volume knob on those things. If it is not too much trouble, bring it along and we'll see if it can be used reasonably. Perhaps all acoustic after 12:00 PM would satisfy any concerns.

That was my line of thinking. In theory, with a volume knob, I can make it even more quiet than an acoustic instrument. I think my buddy will be coming along, and he is also a musician, so I may bring my acoustic as well, and I won't forget my harmonica this time. I have a cabin this year, so that's a whole lot of tent/sleeping bag/air mattress space I will be saving in my car, and I should have some room.

I'll see if I can't scrape the old beer residue out of a blues harp or two for the jam.

For some reason, they all end up smelling like beer and cigars...

Anyone planning on coming should have a look at my info page. It collects some helpful information and links, has maps to the campground and gathering areas and also contains the basic information on just what the heck is

I loved the stream/fly fishing report last year. It was great to hear a local expert talk about the streams and tactics. I learned a lot just from sitting for 20 or 30 minutes and listening.

i have an idea for a jam type event have people bring miscellaneous tying materials place some totally random materials in grab bags so no one knows what they are getting and have like a "chopped " style tying contest winner gets beverages submitted by participants

I find tying gets in way of my drinking at the jam.
