I'm going Saturday. At 10am, I'm going to Old Lefty's seminar (Dave Rothrock - the REAL "Old Lefty", not that SRC turncoat Lefty Kreh).

The rest of the day is clear as mud - I can't take more than a few steps without bumping into someone I know.

Afish,
Yup, that would be me - "famous for being famous."
Maybe we need our own reality TV show: "Famous for Being Famous - Who is the Paris Hilton of PAFF?"
My money's on Ed for the thumb match....

Anyway, thanks all for the compliments. Yes, I've considered a booth at Somerset and may look into it someday. There are some artists there although, truth be told, I'm simply not in their league. Mark Sussino, the fish artist I admire so much, is usually there. So is sporting art watercolorist CD Clarke. It might be worth a try for me - would have to sell enough to break even on the trip with travel, lodging etc. I usually do at least one art show per year locally but selling art is tough and many shows I've done have lost money. It's also a lot of time to get together a portfolio for a show like this and many years I wouldn't have had the time to paint that much. I'm assuming one would have to apply to a jury with portfolio and resume for consideration(?).
Now, a PAFF booth might be a bit more viable as several eastside folks could man it but, again - might be tough just to break even. Also, the show may be filled insofar as space is concerned and there might be a long wait for a vacant booth. The fly tying spots are smaller and maybe easier to get into (?). Some excellent local PA tyers are usually there.
Is Dave Rothrock's presentation the one he usually does on nymphs? I agree, it's excellent - packed with info and lots of good photos.
Look forward to seeing all.

Fish, the program I'll be presenting isn't my nymphing program.
I'm updating all of my programs with new digital images. It is a slow process since I like to fish too much

The "Bugs and Imitations" program includes images of all three stages of many eastern mayflies, along with some caddisflies and stoneflies. The images of imitations include a variety of styles of dries, etc. I also include images of fish and fishing.

I hope all of you who attend the show find time to stop by my tying table to say "hi." Maybe we can even talk a little tyin' and fishin'!

Are we still going to try as Fishidiot has suggested- a mid day mini-rally: I'll make it a point to be at the large table where folks fill out their raffle tickets near the main entrance at 1pm.

I am looking forward to meeting up with everyone!

Dave

Guess that makes it official! Getting to meet our fearless leader in person is a very nice surprise. Hope you're thirsty Dave. We all owe you - BIG TIME.

Any chance you could bring some PAFF decals along? I know I'd buy a few, and I'm sure others would as well.

H.A.

Guys,

If you are looking for a hat please check on Maurice's thread here in this forum. He really worked hard last year and had some really nice Pa Fly Fishing hats made up.

I don't really think I have enough of the euro stickers to cover the interest right now. Here is a link for them online http://bit.ly/5Cm91D
(I Fixed the link above)

I am using Cafe Press as a way to produce and distribute them. They make a really nice product and will be a much more efficient to get them to everyone. Me Mongo not so good at mail order business. Click the link and they will take care of you.

As the Jam get's closer and I work a few things out with Millertime on a new logo I will plan on working a few items for the spring.

Saturday I will be wearing my hat!

Your link doesn't work, it just takes me to a timeout page. What's the name of the store you're using? "PA fly fish, " "PAFF," and "paflyfish.com" don't seem to find it.
