Friday, May 20th is the start annual gathering for the Paflyfish Spring Jamboree Weekend. This our annual meet-up for members of the site get together to fly fish, tie flies, camp and share a few stories. We have a lot of fun fishing over some of Pennsylvania's finest streams including the Little J, Penns Creek, Spring Creek, Fishing Creek and plenty more in the region.

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 take place at the pavilion. The idea of the weekend it provide a setting for a casual weekend fly fishing in a great region of Pennsylvania . As with every year we will be meeting up in the evenings at the pavilion to catch up. Friday and Saturday mornings we meet for coffee and plan the day. Often plenty of opportunities for some fly tying and casting lessons being shared.

Friday night we a very fortunate to have Dave Rothrock lead a presentation on Fly Fishing Central Pennsylvania Streams. Dave is an expert angler, outstanding guide and certified casting instructor in the region. His fly fishing experience and incredible knowledge will make for a great presentation on Friday night and should not be missed. Saturday morning Dave will also be leading anglers with a Saturday morning casting clinic with the help of Derek "TimRobison" and Tom Ciannilli "Afishinado", both professionals in the fly fishing industry. I want to thank all three gentleman in their help and support of the weekend.
