As im very new at fly shopping, what kind of sizes should i be looking at for the spinners and duns and such for this event? I have to start building up by flybox. (ha just as a got a decent box full of blue fox and mepps spinners for spinning lures)

dont have to get too detailed as ill do research for the rest of what i buy, but i just want to know what ill need to catch a bunch at an away game haha

It's great to see all of this early interest in my favorite outing of the year. Hatches seem to be getting close to their normal schedule now, so I think tricos will be going by this time. Hope for a little rain the night before to slightly stain the water and it will be game on! From a fishing perspective, have plenty of tricos duns and spinners for the morning and then green weenies (although I prefer my inchworm) and other searcher nymphs for after the hatch.

DJS is our traditional BBQ chef and as he states above he'll bring his grill but just in case his schedule doesn't permit him to make it, anyone who has a large grill they can bring, if needed, please PM me. Also, rather than clog up this thread with requests for what to bring, please send me PM's of what you'd like to bring and in early July I'll start a new thread for those attending and what they are bringing so that everyone can see who is coming and what is still needed for a successful picnic. I will tell you this, if you leave hungry, you were either still fishing during lunch or got lost!

Tricos as big as 20 ( on the big end) as small as 22, 24 on the more realistic end...mine are usual?y 22's tied lawyer style (thanks to HeritageAngler's tutelage)

FishInPhilly - Unless you get there really early, say before 7AM, I wouldn't worry too much about trico duns. They come off at first light, and a bit later.

The real action is on the spinnerfall. Some sz 24 poly wing spinners, and sz 24 Al's Tricos should be all you need for them. Bring some sz 14 & 16 ants, and sz 12, 14, and 16 beetles along too.

For nymphing, it's tough to beat sz 16 pheasant tails, and sz 12 and 14 green weenies. There's a variation of the green weenie called the honeybug inchworm the regulars use there that works great.

If you can wait until after 9AM to buy flies, the shop opens then, and they have what you need. Their flies are very well tied, and not terribly expensive. We can cover you for flies until the shop opens.

Some time ago, TDB offered up a copy of Dynamic Nymphing by George Daniels to the Newbie that responded first to his posting. I was lucky enough to be the newb that got the book.

I checked with him and he agreed with my thought that I would take it to the Fish and Chips event. At some point during the day, we'll put the Newbie's names into a hat and pass the book onto someone.

My hope is that whoever gets the book will read and learn from it, then pass it on to another newbie.

Ryan, H-A, Delta Dog and me will be there by first light. Or as H-A likes to say zero dark thirty. One of us will have duns for you to use. Having the right flies should be WAY down on your list of worries for that day. I want your biggest worry to be what the hell do I eat, there is SO much to choose from!

As usual Dave is thinking about the next class of newbies. Which is so appropriate because the guy is all about "class"!

Also, I know its early to commit but if any of our "professional" guys out there would like to come and do a presentation at the Fish N Chips, please contact me via PM. These newbies are like sponges and suck up information with a zeal I love. They would enjoy anything from a casting demo, a tying demo, streams to fish or an entomology lesson.

OldLefty has provided a casting demo for the first two years and he is more than welcome to do it again (I hope he does) but I wanted to offer it out to other guys (or gals, yes that means you April) if they 'd like to join the fun.

Many thanks,
Fox

Fox,

Don't fall for that. You could have the Swedish Bikini Team show up and you would still get your butt busted.

I'm curious how you cook apples on the grill? I've had grilled pineapple that's really good.

If April Vokey shows up, just call me a newbie.
