Saturday was a fun day spent at The Fly Fishing Show in Somerset NJ. I met up with a lot of friends, sat in on some interesting seminars and enjoyed an awesome vendor trade floor. There was so much stuff going on it reminded me of being on Penns Creek on a late May evening with about three different hatches happening all at the same time.

The trip started at the Letort in Carlisle early Saturday morning. No we were not actually fishing, but caught up with some forum members I really admire Dave “Fishidiot” and Josh “3wt7x”. I enjoyed and appreciated a leisurely bus ride setup by the guys from the Cumberland Valley TU.

lhgsOnce there we scouted the trade show floor. It was a great set-up with over 250 vendors, a couple of casting areas and a small casting pond. As you can imagine the usual suspects were there with Sage, Scott, St. Croix and many other traditional product vendors throughout the trade show floor.

More pictures on the Paflyfish Facebook Fan Page found here.

A variety of fly shops from the region had booths offering what seemed to be a lot of very good deals. I enjoyed catching up with a Chris and Tony at TCO Fly Shop. They had a rather large well-stocked setup. Jonas from The Feathered Hook was good to see and had me laughing.

Jumped over to the hotel side of the event where all the seminars were being held. I stopped in on Jim and Ernie from Laurel Highlands Guide Services where they shared a very good seminar on the Yough. Bryan Kelly from Kelly's White Fly Shop started the afternoon with a knock out presentation about smallmouth fishing on the Potomac. Both seminars have me ready to hit some bigger water this year.

I had a chance to spin through the floor one more time and caught up with Mike Heck as he was tying flies and talking it up with a bunch of fans about his awesome book Spring Creek Strategies: Hatches, Patterns, and Techniques. Would have loved to have caught up with Dave Rothrock, but he was a man on the move making presentations. Next time Dave!

There was a good crew of PaFlyFish members including: Fishidiot, Gfen, Pcray1234, 3wt7x, Heritage Angler, Tim Murphy, Rolf and Wetfly. Plenty of other events and seminars that were too numerous to see in the one day I was there.

We had nice trip back with on the bus with the CVTU crew that included a dinner stop at Cabela’s with just one more chance to drain any cash that was left in my wallet.

Great show put on by Chuck Furimsky and staff. Definitely one fly-fishing event you should not miss.

Yet another fun and wonderful year for all the anglers who participate here at PaFlyFish. I have assembled a slide show of pictures that have been posted on the site over the past year. With over 1,000 pictures to look over it was fun to throw this together.

With events like the Spring Jam, Fly Swaps, the Steelhead Jam, and fly-fishing clinics it has been a great year. A special thanks to Pad, Jack and Maurice who moderate the forum and provide much needed leadership on the site. We all really appreciate and enjoy those that contribute to the site and our fly fishing community.

Happy Holidays!

Dave

After a wonderful year of fly fishing and a equally exciting photography contest I am proud to share the availability of the 2010 Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Calendar. As announced last week, the top three winners and the eight honorable mentions from the photography contest are part of the calendar.

2010 calendarA special thanks to Tom Frank, Josh Slaymaker, Chris Ulmer, Flip Michaels, Ryan Gouldsbarry, John Forys, Anthony Naples, Anthony Pagely, Art Feldman and Craig Bollinger for their winning entries for the calendar.

A lot of time by Maurice, Jack and Pad in helping with the judging was much appreciated as well.

Really a fun year and I know the calendar will be something everyone will enjoy on their wall at home, office or fly tying man cave. The calendars can be found at the new PaFlyFish on-line product store with a couple additional items to the calendar for this year.

The calendar and store can be found here.
