If this happens, I may catch some fish this year. I'll be there. Completely STUDENT.

I'd be interested in helping out. Not really interested in being a student (unless we're doing another casting clinic with Dave), and not really sure if I am qualified to be a teacher, but I am in. Willing to help wherever possible, provided I can make it.

I would like to attend, I am way more student than teacher, way more.

But I have never fished the LL before and never met any of you PAFF'ers either so I think it would be fun

I can't tie flies but could bring extra gear if someone needs it

OK, that's all I needed to see. It's a go...

2011 PAFF Newbie Mini-Jam
Saturday, 2/26/11
9am - 4pm (90 minute break for lunch at noon)
Location: Little Lehigh, next to the spring house/former fly shop.

I'll make an announcement in the events forum as well.

Jay - Can you do a short program (1/2 hour tops) on bugs/flies? Visuals would be nice.

Andy - Can you take charge of the fly collection/distribution? All tyers are encouraged to donate whatever you can for the newbies/non-tyers. We'll collect them first thing, and distribute them after lunch.

All instructors - this is informal. Do whatever you feel is appropriate for your assigned section, but keep it to a half hour, time wise. Visuals are a good thing. We'll keep the casting instruction going the whole time, which will allow individual quality instruction time. This also gives any of the instructors a chance to work with Old Lefty (if he's there) in the afternoon.

I'll provide coffee and donuts in the morning, and spring water all day.

Ryan - Lemme know what I'd owe you for three boxes of Oram's (shipped), and if you're willing to do that. I get the leftovers.

JasonS - You're with me. We'll fill in wherever needed, and we'll set things up. Be early, buddy.

26th, eh. I've got a pretty good shot at making this, then.

Not sure where I fit in. Not a beginner, but I'm not instructor quality either, especially as it pertains to casting. I'll do what I can to help and maybe learn a little in the process.

Thanks so much for doing this guys. It'll be worth the drive. Might be a little late though, depending on traffic. I'm not willing to leave the house much earlier than 6.

Oh, I'm quite sure.

Pat - Can you do a brief (1/2 hour or less) talk on some commonly used techniques used to fish the flies that Jay (hopefully) will be discussing? Don't worry about it being all-encompassing. Remember this is for beginners - simple is good. Your session will probably bring a lot of questions, and you're quick on your feet. Your session will be the last of the morning, except for the casting, so if you want to cover knots also, feel free. We'll have enough experienced guys there to make sure the newbs get individual instruction on knots. This can go on in conjunction with the casting, up until lunchtime.

Pontus - Glad you like this. This is one way of showing our support for the new guys, and lends a bit of "hands on" information in addition to the beginners forum. I think it's cool that guys have an opportunity to learn and share information that is often easier done in person.

The best way to learn something is to teach it!

I could do a session on indicator fishing, supply printouts of my talking notes for the # of students, and topics include:
“Bobber” Indicators
Yarn Indicators
Dry Fly Indicators
Greased Leader and Sight Fishing
Rigging Indicators - slip ons, yarn with clinch knot to leader, split shot
Rigging Dry Fly Indicators - connecting the point fly to the bend of the hook of the top fly, connecting the point fly to the eye of the top fly, and blood knot dropper


Should be able to bring some flies up, as well. Hope the weather doesn't suck......

Keith

Sounds great, Keith! I'll slot you in.

Really, this isn't even something you need to plan that much for, but if you want to - go for it. Considering the subjects involved, the guys that will be speaking should be able to do this in their sleep, and they probably do!

Just imagine being a newbie, and being able to tap into the immense experience pool of the people speaking. People pay hundreds of dollars for classes being taught by instructors of this caliber - if they're lucky. A good mentor can really accelerate a beginning flyfisher's learning curve. PAFF is a great place to get that kind of mentoring, and to get it in person is priceless.

To my knowledge, this is the first I've ever seen of an internet flyfishing forum offering a program like this for beginners.
