2011 PAFF Eastern PA Fly Tying Mini Jam 12/17/11

As per the posts I made in the Events and General forums, there will be a tying mini-jam held at the Lehigh Gap Nature Center on Saturday 12/17/11 from 1PM to 5PM.

This thread is the place to sign up if you plan on attending.

To bring some semblence of organization to this event, what I'd like the tyers that attend to do, is pick ONE fly that they feel comfortable tying and sharing the recipe and techniques required to tie it. You'll then get to be the "featured tyer" for a few minutes, while you tie that fly, and explain as you go. We'll have plenty of time, so you won't be rushed. Duplicate flies are OK, but the more variety of flies, the better.

It'd be really cool if the tyers could "pre-package" a half dozen kits (materials and a hook for two flies in each) in ziplock bags for folks that'd like to try tying your pattern. This is targeted primarily for any newbies in attendance that don't have tying stuff with them. This is optional, not mandatory, as it could get expensive, and the pattern may not be "newbie friendly". It's your call. If you decide to make up "kits", you'll then be asked to go over to the newbie table, and help the newbies with your pattern.

I'd also like to ask the tyers to donate their selected fly to be raffled off at the end of the day (4:30PM). All proceeds from the raffle will be given to the Nature Center as a donation.

I'll start things off:

H.A. - sulphur comparadun w/newbie kits

trowpa - BHPT - sorry trow, it had to be done.

Im in for a fly tyer. I can do an olive caddis larva. It will demonstrate dubbing natural fur materials, as well as tying a beard on a fly.

Substituting some less expensive materials might be a good idea for that fly if you make up kits (I'll help). That's a really cool looking fly - your Sensei is extremely proud of your tying abilities.

Did I forget to mention that you are running the raffle, as well as being an emergency fill-in for me, in case I get hit by a truck?

I'm not making any promises of kits because I've gone poor lately, but if you need someone to explain God's OTHER own Dry Fly, the Usual, I'm in.

Newbies aren't powerful enough to learn the Secret of the Royal MF Wulff, though, Plus, I tie mine like ass.

No fears big fella. I'll bring a bunny foot we can carve up, and some extra hooks. You can provide the other materials.

Why can you not? You have plenty of time to bug your parents.

The kits will be for use at the Jam only. The newbies will only be able to use them under the guidance of the tyer that provided them. Any kits that are unused will remain with the tyer that provided them.

If anyone wants to give materials away, that's up to them. I'm going to contact a few local fly shops to see if they'd be willing to donate materials, but I'm not counting on anything. We may get materials donated that don't apply to what we're tying, which is why I came up with the idea of the kits. This is still a work in progress as far as donations go, and probably will be up until 12/17. In all likelihood, most donated materials will wind up in the raffle. That's Sparky's job. Things like thread and hooks might get used, with the remnants going into the raffle. We'll just keep pulling tickets until everything's gone.

You should look into a video camera and projector. I got the video camera. No projector.

I will see what I can do.
