I think this is going to be a great time. We all like teaching to those that want help and it sounds to me like there will plenty of willing candidates. Hopefully we can all learn something.

Look forward to seeing you guys and gals. For those of you that don't know me, I'll be wearing the Valley Forge TU ball cap and should be there no later than 9.

Pretty noobish as this is my first year flyfishing for trout heavily, casting is Ok but you can go ahead and lump me into the crowd that needs help with all things nymphlike. Hopin the shops open as I think I have like one nymph in my box ha.

Ok, things are working out a bit. And I can offer an invite to anyone interested. Sorry to foxgap for potentially stealing a newbie!!!

Swattie and I will be there for the beginning at 10. We intend to stay for a little while and help where appropriate. And then take off to explore some small streams. We do have 3rd person as a "maybe." But willing to add 1 newbie either way.

So, the first newbie interested feel free to speak up, you are invited. This will be an exploring trip, to smallish streams that are new to both Swattie and I, and will not be named on the public forum. So there is no promise of success, and we could do an awful lot of driving around with not a whole lot to show for it.

But there's also a shot at finding a gem. Could be brookies or browns or both. We have a Plan A and several backup plans in case we run into posted land or whatever. In other words, an authentic exploring trip that may or may not work out, but a newbie would learn how to go about the process of finding their own hidden gems, from 2 fishermen who are experienced at this type of fishing.

Would likely be a FULL day with a late return, and difficulty of terrain is uncertain, but likely difficult, lol. Small stream, rocky gorge type places. If you have appropriate equipment, bring it. If not, let us know.

Pcray that sounds like a lot of fun. If no one takes you up on being the noob, I'd be interested. But I'd also like to see what is going on at the brush up first before I committed. If someone there has something to offer which I really need to learn, which is beyond likely, I'd rather focus on that.

I really like fly fishing, but crashing through unknown forests is a life long passion.

In other news, I am planning to arrive by 9.

DJBerg, you were first, you're in. And I know "a little" about the ANF (I know the western ANF region better than anywhere).

I'll be she short guy with an angry look and virtually zero personality. LOL. Honda with Simms sticker on the back.


*** disclaimer ***
If you show up with bamboo or glass, it's obvious you don't know my position on them. If I pull in and you are wearing tweed, I will not stop my vehicle or even wave. Also want to bring your sense of humor since fishing is fun.

That is probably the most respectful thing I have ever read on this forum. I wish other people would be as kind as you in that area. Unfortunately with Facebook, Twitter and other social media, people feel they have the right to post video and pics with no discrimination. It's quite discerning.

Hats off.
