Delaware Valley Fly Fishing Club gets started by Gaeronf

Published by Dave Kile [dkile] on 01/07/2013 (1452 reads)
I always enjoy hearing about those in our fly fishing community that contribute and help others. Gaeron (Gaeronf) Friedrichs is one of the younger members of the site and has been doing just that this year. Recently Gaeronf has started the Delaware Valley Fly Fishing Club (DVFC) at Delaware Valley High School under the supervision of Mr. Schaffer.

Delaware Valley Fly Fishing ClubAs the founder and president, Gaeronf has organized the DVFC Thursday meetings and helped planned upcoming activities. The club has about 7 high school students looking forward to learning about and helping each other get started with fly fishing. At the first meeting in December they watched a video about the overview of the fly fishing sport. Subsequent meetings have been focussed on knot tying and learning how to tie flies. In future meetings the are looking forward towards learning about stream entomology and working on tying more flies.

Heritage Angler and others from Paflyfish have teamed up with DVFC on Saturday, January 12th to help provide hands-on lessons for the club members. More details about helping out this weekend can be found here in the forum. A special thanks to Heritage Angler and those volunteering their time this weekend.

Ben TurpinThe club is looking for donations and would graciously accept: rods, reels, fly lines, backing, tippet, leaders, forceps, nippers, fly boxes, vests, packs, split shot, floatant, strike indicators, flies, waders, etc. Please PM Gaeronf if you can help the club out.

Congratulations and good luck to Gaeronf in getting this club going. You can also catch Gaeronf at the upcoming Somerset Fly Fishing Show were he will be Ben Turpin's booth and catch his blog here.

Well done to all of you who work with these boys and girls. We need to make sure the next generation will work hard to preserve the resource.
