The Rivers Conservation and Fly Fishing Youth Camp will be in June this year at Messiah College along the Yellow Breeches. This is the premier FFing and coldwater youth camp in the northeast and runs in conjuction with Cumberland Valley Trout Unlimited.

We're always in need of flies for the students. CVTU volunteers do most of the tying but we could use some help. If you'd like to help with tying flies, we need standard, basic trout fly patterns in sets of three dozen. These include things like #16 PT, Wooly Buggers, Green Weenies, #12 Hare's Ear, #20 Zebra Midge, etc. Flies in the group should all be tied on the same size hook and with the same materials.

(Please note that you would be donating your time and materials. This is not a paid effort)

If you've got adequate time, material, and 36 hooks of the same size and shape available, we'd appreciate your efforts. You can ship the flies directly to me. PM for more info on shipping.

Thanks,
Dave

Just to clarify...I'm seeking individuals who will tie 36 examples of one pattern, not all the different flies.

You may, however, volunteer to tie an additional pattern if you'd like. (That would be 72 total flies - a lot of tying)

I have committments for the following patterns:
PT
Zebra Midge

Other flies are available (any basic, well known trout pattterns).

I would need them sent to me by about early to mid-May.
Thanks again.

Have a dozen size 12 Gold Ribbed Hares Ears tied for the Camp.

Have to order more hooks to finish them.
