Paflyfish 2016 Spring Jamboree and 20th Anniversary

Published by Dave Kile [dkile] on 12/16/2015 (6726 reads)
Twenty years of anything is always fun to recognize and Paflyfish is beginning our 20th year online starting December 2015. One of more popular events off the site is our annual Spring Jamboree that will be occurring May 20-22, 2016 at the Seven Mountains Campground in Spring Mills, Pennsylvania.

The Jamboree is our annual spring meet-up when members from the site get together to fly fish, tie flies, camp and share a few stories. We have folks coming from all parts of the country like: Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Florida. During the weekend we are fly fishing over some of Pennsylvania's finest streams including Penns Creek, Spring Creek, Little Juniata River (Little J), Fishing Creek and plenty more in the region.

This year is a certainly special with us celebrating our 20th Anniversary. As we have done over the past five years, we will be holding the weekend at Seven Mountains Campground.

Please contact them if you would like to stay there that weekend. They have a limited number of cabins and campsites.

We are hoping to plan more activities specific to new fly fishing anglers. I am working on casting lessons, fly tying and even a few trips out on to some of the waters in the area. There are a lot of members on the site that will informally help folks out who may not be familiar with the area. Just check the forums and don't be afraid to ask for some help.

The pavilion is rented by Paflyfish and is used as a meeting point during the weekend. Plenty of impromptu conversations, fly tying and meet-ups all take place.

Friday, May 20th

Jam attendees often start arriving throughout the day if they haven't arrived earlier in the week. Stop by after 3:00PM to help or meet others trying to get back out on the water before dark.

Fire Ring at the pavilion around dark. Will will be working on some more plans like a chili cook-off and other evening activities. Quiet hours may be a factor.

I was routed here through Facebook. Any chance you can make it an "Event" on facebook? I have some younger friends that can't keep track of things, so would be awesome if I could just forward the "Event" to them on Facebook and maybe have a better chance of them showing up...
