All PAFF members, family, and friends are cordially invited to join us for the 2010 SE PA Trico Mini-Jam on the Little Lehigh.

This event will be held on Sunday, July 4 at 7AM.

Due to the nature of fishing the Trico spinner fall, and the desire of many members to have a "mini Jam" that they don't have to make a multi-day committment to, a central location in the state (ie. Spring Creek) was deemed impractical. Therefore, the event will be held on the banks of the Little Lehigh, providing good access to anglers from two of the three largest metropolitan areas in the state.

We'll meet in the parking lot off of Park Rd at 7AM, and there should be plenty of room for everyone to fish. Weather is always a crap shoot, but we could use the rain that this event seems to bring on.

For those members that have never fished a Trico spinnerfall before - we'll try to pair you up with an experienced fisherman to help you out.

Waders are a good idea, but wet wading is an option (if you can stand the cold water). I'll have a case of spring water on ice in my truck, but it would be a good idea to carry some with you. Alcoholic beverages are not permitted in the Allentown Parkway system.

After the fishing and inevitable BS session, we'll be heading out to do lunch, and BS some more. The early start time should allow attendees to still get home in time for their Independence Day picnics.

No sign up required - just show up by 7AM.

Directions

Well if I wake up at leave at 2am and don't mind getting in trouble if my little girl is born a bit early, then I'm there! lol.


You guys have fun. Been looking forward to fishing over my first trico hatch, but it'll have to wait till next year.

Bring on the Steelhead JAM!!!

bassistjon112,

Man up! We're about the same drive time away from LL. I'm leaving around 3am! I'm not the biggest trico fan either but it's a chance to meet some of these guys and maybe learn some new stuff.

No. I'll be fishing in the 'hetero' section. Woooo Hoooo!!!


Sure. We'll go play golf after fishing. I'll use modern clubs and you can use hickory shafted clubs. We'll see who enjoys their round more.

OK. I see where this is going. I'll change to sport coat, tie, no shirt with one of those pointy chinese style hats made of straw. Chin strap made of bamboo. :)

Y'know, in my youth I'd have not only met that challenge face on, I'd have blown past it in stupidity.

You're all very, very lucky.

I'm thinking about taking a holiday road trip to join you guys Sunday morning. Can anyone recommend a hotel somwhere between Harrisburg and were we will be?

Cheap and clean will do; WIFI would be a plus. Hope to see you all soon

Hi Mike!

It'd be great to see you again.

I have no clue what the cheapest place to stay here would be, but I drive by a billboard every day for the Red Roof Inn. It says the rooms are $59.99 a night with free wifi.

Red Roof Inn

That place is about 15 minutes from where we'll be fishing. I stayed there once, but only for a few hours.

Lemme know if you need any more info (about the fishing!)...

Thanks HA It will be my 1st time in that area, so I'm looking forward to it.

I've tied a few Al's Tricos in #24. Should I tie a few in #22 as well? I would put pictures of them up, but I can't get my camera get clear focus on them.

Have a good friday everyone; the weekend's almost here
