I would like to attend (weather permitting). I have been watching, but have not tied a single knot yet. How do I sign up to view? Also, my 12 y.o. son is dying to learn how to tie, so I have to bring him along as well. Are there any restrictions?

Welcome to the forum, hack!

Consider yourself signed up for this event, and of course your son is also welcome.

The only restriction is that you have to have a good time, which should be easy with this crew.

We'll try to give you a foundation to begin your tying experience, and you'll get the chance to use a wide variety of tying equipment. Hopefully, this will give you a good idea of what you'd like to purchase down the line, thereby saving you money.

There will also be information available on local tying classes in case you'd like to continue your tying adventure. These classes are either free of charge, or have a very nominal fee. I've sat in on both, and they're excellent opportunities to learn.

Looking forward to seeing you and your son there.

H.A.

HA,

I will plan on attending this event. I have not decided if I will demonstrate any tying though. I will let you know.

Thanks, H.A.

Looking forward to it. I have been going to meetings for a couple of months now,but they don't seem to be working, cause the addiction is only getting worse!

I bought my son a basic kit off the interwebz, but we haven't sat down with it yet. We are both looking forward to getting a chance to really see some folks who know what they are doing and get started to putting some bugs together that might even catch fish!

Thanks again for the welcome and the confirmation. Look forward to meeting everyone.

No special invite. It is just a bunch of guys from the board and getting together. It is 20 minutes north of Allentown. It's near Palmerton.

Hi longcast - Directions to the Osprey House at the Lehigh Gap Nature Center can be obtained here. That is the location for the tying jam.

The places where you can get further tying instruction locally here are as follows:

Hokendauqua Trout Unlimited

and Tuedays at the LL Bean Center Valley at 6PM.

I'm hoping to have the guy attend the jam that runs the Hokendauqua TU tying class - that'd be tony300wby here on this forum.

I'm also hoping to have the guy that runs the tying classes at the local LL Bean (George Maciag) in attendance at the jam.

These two guys can provide additional information on their respective tying classes to the jam attendees. They're also some of the best local tyers, and would add a tremendous amount of tying skills to our event.

Hope to see you at the Jam!

H.A.

George's class cycle just re-started last week, or this week. Its free, and will take you from rank beginner to not rank beginner. I've done it in the past, and I knwo dubthethorax just ran through the cycle.

George's class is fantastic. I went in to it having some fairly decent tying skills/knowledge and I still learned a ton. Even if you aren't just starting out, it's extremely informative.

You might be a little bored the first few weeks though.

oh yeah, and I'd love to attend this, and I'd even love to tie some flies if there's room.

I'm kind of new to the board in the sense that I have never met anyone or gone to any events yet. I think this is a great way to start. I can tie a little bit and my specialities are Comparaduns and of course, my inchworm. If you need a tyer, maybe I could fill a spot but if you don't need a tyer, I'd love to attend anyway.
