Paflyfish 2012 Spring Jamboree Recap Part 1

Published by Dave Kile [dkile] on 05/31/2012 (2143 reads)
dwight landisThe 2012 Paflyfish Jamboree and Meetup was marked by a big turn out, a good time and unusually sunny skies. There we plenty of good fishing opportunities in the region and time spent at the Seven Mountains Campground getting caught up with the 75 plus members in for the weekend.

This year Dwight "troutbert" Landis provided a detailed presentation about Spring Creek on Friday night. Saturday was followed up with a raffle that was supported by many members and sponsors on the site. Next weeks post will cover our sponsors and winners in Part 2.

I thought I would try a different approach to reviewing the weekend. Here are some of the quotes and photos from those at the weekend that put it all in perspective from the forum after the weekend.

"I caught one trout on a wooly bugger, but did not use a bobber." - JackM

"Oh, the chili!! and that tenderloin, OMG!! Incredible!!! Between the food and the music, it was a great time." - Mooney4

"I swear to God, there was a Sasquatch wading the stream, just standing out there in the middle, I couldn't believe it." - Pcray1231

"You can lead a Sasquatch to water, and he'll probably fall on his arse...twice, and miss 5/6 of the fish he hooks into." - The_Sasquatch

"...boy oh boy, did i have a good time!!!" - shakey


flyfishing knots


"Flipnfly even caught a turtle on a midge - I'd have never believed it, but he has the picture to back it up" - Heritage Angler

"i would truly like the picture of all of the people who's patience i've tested over the years and me." - Gfen

"I'm not sure Alby or Biker will remember talking to me." Krayfish

"After many years of attending the Jam, I can honestly say this year's was the driest I've ever seen (and I don't mean "lack of booze" dry )." - tocar

"The fishing gods weren't great to me this weekend but who cares?" - Fishidiot

"I still figure my sulfur spinner must make a heck of a dun imitation. Problem is, it didn't seem to make a good spinner imitation!" - Pcray1231


flyfishing knots


"I can only say that you folks around State College have some excellent road sign artists. It's funny what towns like Tusseyville and Ennisville can be turned into with some well placed paint strokes." - Swattie87

"Had a great time at the jam and I think most of my stories should remain private to avoid incrimination." - MattBoyer

"Saturday night seemed like organized chaos." - ryguyfi

"Strange thing. I did not go to the Jam this year but had 4 people call me Squaretail and introduce themselves on the stream." - squaretail

"The fishing was secondary to the company, but that was pretty darn good too." - Swattie87

"+1 tenderloin....mmm...beef will never be the same" - TimRobinson


flyfishing knots


"In my defense, it totally looked like my van, to bad mine was in Lancaster." - Sal

"Every one I talked to was great.I'm already looking to next time to do some camping and fishing. There is so much experience at the jam it's an incredible event." - lv2nymph

"The folks who live in the State College area are truly blessed to have such good fishing close-by, in streams both large and small. I hope to make it again and see you all at the 2013 Jam!" - goodfortune


flyfishing knots


"...Jack, you are a card." - The_Sasquatch

"Had a blast at this year's JAM. Got to see a bunch of friends and met some new ones. Tons of good food, stories, and drink. We even fished a little too. Thanks to everyone that helps set this up. It is a great time." - Turkey

I really enjoyed this years jam (as usual)
A big thank you to Dave and mods for all of their effort in this.
And to shakey and his all star band for the great entertainment.

Kudos also to the campground for being very accomodating to us. I had three buddies who made a last minute decision to attend (for the first time) on friday. And the host had no problem with squeezing them in to the tent site I had reserved

While gratitude is certainly owed to sponsors and donors for the raffle, I want to say thanks to everyone who stepped up and donated, some in a BIG way. Thanks all for the community effort to make this thing guaranteed to last at least one more year, probably, though, many more!
