Paflyfish was fortunate to have several sponsors at this years Paflyfish Jamboree. I want to share with you those members of the site, advertisers that contributed to the weekend.

David WeaverFor several years now David "Fishidiot" Weaver has donated one of his fine framed paintings at the Jam and this year was no exception. David brings a completed frame and paints during the weekend to have the final fly fishing artwork complete for Saturday night. Certainly the most popular item amongst the members during the weekend. To see more of his paintings please go to his website at

Allen FlyFishingAllen FlyFishing has been a long time sponsor of the site and this year really stepped it up donating several of their rods for the weekend. A few of the guys had a chance to try out the rods during the weekend. Allen FlyFishing provided a few of their ATS rods, which are an affordable, high performance rods at an entry level price point. One of their Xa Series 5wt 10ft rods was included as well. These Xa rods are designed to provide a fast recovery and responsiveness for a wide variety of angling situations. To learn more about their fly fishing rods and reels please visit the Allen FlyFishing website here.

Harman's North Fork Cottages provided a gift certificate to one of their riverside cabins in West Virginia. Their rental cabins are available year-round on stocked trout waters on the North Fork of the South Branch of the Potomac River. To find out more about other activities and fishing found on the grounds and in the area check out their website here.

Another member of the site, Coty "csoult" Soult provided a beautiful fly tying bench made of red oak and birds eye maple. A big hit as many were impressed with the quality and craftsmanship.

One of the newest advertisers on the site Cutthroat Leaders provide several of their Furled Fly Fishing Leaders to the members. Cutthroat Leaders are hand crafted UNI thread leaders that provide an outstanding presentation that don't over-spray and spook your fish. Find out more about their great line of Furled Fishing Leaders here.

Andy Ramish from Tight Line Fly Reels stopped over on Saturday and provided one of his his reels that is machined and assembled in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania. His reels are some real works of technical art as much as functioning fly fishing reels. Thanks for stopping over to the Jam and please check his website out to learn more about his awesome reels here.

A special thanks to all those that contributed to the Jam this year. We are working out details in a way we will be contributing to the Rivers Conservation & Fly Fishing Youth Camp in Boiling Springs, Pa. I look forward to sharing how we will be supporting the young anglers interested in learning more about fly fishing.

I can't say enough how much I love the 2wt ATS rod that I won at the raffle. Best $10 rod I ever bought! (I only bought $10 in raffle tix). In all seriousness, this rod is built really really well, has some great backbone, and casts freaking awesome. I've really been enjoying it. I'm gonna go for a 9'5wt next.

I was delighted to win the 2 nights at Harmon's. I'm currently in negotiations with my wife on the timing of the trip.

I'd like to see a photo of one of Coty's tying benches loaded up with fur, feather, and thread...

And may I add thanks to all that purchased raffle tickets. Your donations supported the Jam last year and this year and will also fund next year, plus a substantial donation to a worthy organization. Nice blog, Dave, and thanks too to the sponsors and generous donors.
