Sometimes when I get snagged in a tree or on a branch i'll wade through the shallowest area to get to it. This may include letting out lots of line in order to get around a deep pocket. I have also used my fly rod and line to pull a branch down to me to retreive a fly. Maybe I should look at modifying a walking stick to be able to assist in this area.

Hi John - This year will be the third year for the Newbie Jam.

While I haven't finalized the date yet, we're looking at March 16th, with April 6th as a backup date.

March 16th is the likely day, and we may even choose to do something April 6th as a "review" kind of thing. We did several review days last year for people that wanted additional help, or for those that couldn't make the original Newbie Jam.

I'll make a post in the Events Forum as well as the Beginner's Forum announcing this event when we get a bit more planning done on it.

Last year, pcray co-hosted this event with me, and we're adding Foxgap239 in this year as well. It'll be held at the Wildlands Conservancy in Emmaus in the morning, with lunch at a local restaurant, and an onstream portion down at the Little Lehigh by the fly shop in the afternoon.

Stay tuned....

H.A.

Ed, Do you have an idea when you will be making the decision on the date? My wife tentatively made my sons B-day party for the 16th and b4 I even try to persuade her to move it, I want to be sure .. thanks much.

Per practice casting .. when I began FF last year I attached a fly and practiced casting in my yard. I couldn't even think of flinging them at leaves like Chaz so I used my daughters hula hoops to practice my accuracy. If I can get the fly in that hula hoop range per my target, on the water, I am a very happy man.
