The Rivers Conservation and Fly Fishing Youth Camp is planned for 2021 (the number of students has been reduced to facilitate social distancing). This is the premiere conservation and fly fishing based youth camp in the state and has been sponsored for many years by Cumberland Valley TU.

As per the past, the camp is soliciting flies for the teenage students. We ask for two dozen of the same pattern tied on the same size hook (you will donate the hooks and materials). The flies would need to be completed and in the mail by the end of May.

If you would like to contribute, let me know via PM and I'll get you my mailing address.

Thanks,
Dave W.

That is a nice thing you're doing for the campers. I'd volunteer but so far every fly I tie is vastly different. Some year.

I would like to contribute 2 dozen size 14 gold ribbed hear ears beaded nymphs. I know I'm not the greatest tier slow but steady but these have caught trout for me. I don't know if this is a PM or not.

Or would you rather have modern flies like SWJ’s or IPW’s ?

It's up to you.

The kids need basic, bread and butter trout flies. For what it is worth, they will be fishing for stocked trout on Yellow Breeches in June.

Traditional wet fly patterns are a good choice (as I'm sure you'd agree)
Please check your PM...

Dave, I have an old vise. Is that something the campers can use?

All,
I have rec'd several offers for equipment and other gear. While this is appreciated, I'm only soliciting trout flies in this thread.
Thanks,
Dave
