PA Fly Fishing Museum Association Heritage Day - 5th Annual
PFFMA is excited to once again host the Fifth Annual Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Heritage Day to be held on Saturday, June 16th at the Allenberry Resort Inn & Playhouse at the Picnic Pavilion and The Meadow on the Yellow Breeches Creek in Boiling Springs, PA – rain or shine, 8:30am – 4pm. Heritage Day has a great tradition of being a gathering of fly fishing enthusiasts of all ages, interests, and skill levels coming together to celebrate Pennsylvania’s Fly Fishing Heritage.
There will be presentations and demonstrations by regional and nationally known experts on various fly fishing subjects. In addition, attendees will learn about fly fishing from exhibitors, vendors, fly tiers, bamboo rodmakers and other artisans. You can bring your fly fishing memorabilia and have it appraised by one of the antique tackle dealers. And there will also be great raffles and don't be left out on the crowds favorite...The Rubber Fish Race!
We encourage attendees to pre-register preferably by June 8th, but definitely by June 12th for a $12 admission fee and buffet picnic lunch ticket. Registration (without lunch) the day of the event is $7. There will be only a limited number of buffet lunch tickets available the day of the event at a cost of $8 so we highly recommend pre-register before June 12th.
