Paflyfish Fall Meetups and Jams 2011Published by Dave Kile [dkile] on 09/26/2011 (3357 reads)
If you are looking to keep up with your fly fishing this fall there many opportunities to meet up with some fellow anglers from all corners of the region. This might even be an opportunity to try something new like steelhead, surf fly fishing or if you want just some fall stocked trout we have that too. So don't put away your flies just yet.
The gang at Paflyfish are busy planing several different jams and meetups. These are some very cool opportunities to catch up with some friends, extend the season and get some traveling in across the region.
Each of these events has a link to the event thread in the forum for more details.
Stockoberfeast - Saturday, October 15th
Fadeaway263 is organizing this opportunity to catch some fall stocked trout at Ridley Creek State Park in SE Pennsylvania. Plans are to meet up at 9:00 am in the lower left corner area of the Colonial Plantation parking lot. The PFBC helps keep the season going with some fall trout stockings. More details here.
Saltwater Jersey Jam - October 21-22
Fishidiot is teeing up the first of two Saltwater Jams this Fall at Island Beach State Park in New Jersey. Current plans are to meet on Friday evening and head out early Saturday morning for some surf fishing. Fishidiot will be offering some tips and reviewing the fundamentals of surf fly fishing for those just getting started. Read more about this jam in the Announcements and Events Forum here.
3rd Annual Paflyfish Erie Steelhead JAM - November 11-13
I think Ryguyfi is so excited about this Jam he has been planning this meet-up since January. Last year there were over 30 anglers from Paflyfish that met for weekend in Erie. The fall steelhead fishing is always a unique fly fishing opportunity and if you wanted to give this a try the Annual Steelhead Jam is fun way of doing it. Most of the groups activities are centered around Folly's End Campground. Evening plans include a dinner at the Avonia Tavern when the guys are not out fishing. There are plenty of experienced folks in the forum to help figure our what to expect and what to bring along. More details and suggested travel plans are in the forum here.
Sandy Hook Salt Jam - November 13
For those how can't join the crew in October, Fredrick is organizing another saltwater fly fishing meetup on Sunday, November 13 at Sandy Hook, NJ. Some really good details about gear and some discounted fly rods in the thread here.
