Upcoming Events

January Fly Tying

Date: January 17
Time: 9 am - 1 pm
Place: Farm & Home Center
Arcadia Road

If we can't go fishing, many of us spend the winter months refilling our fly boxes by tying proven patterns as well as experimenting with new ones.

The chapter is going to try something new this year by offering members and the public a place to get together once a month and tie some flies, exchange tips and ideas on tying, tell fish stories and other lies to pass time on a Saturday morning. There will be three sessions in all, in January, February & March, all on the third Saturday of the month. We'll be in Classroom 113, just down the hall from our usual meeting room.

Participants may come and go as they please, attend one, two or all three sessions. Bring your own vice, tools and supplies to tie whatever patterns you want. Limited lessons on tying basics will be available with advance notice.

There is no charge, you need not be a TU member, and no registration requirement, but face it, we're talking winter, so weather may well be a factor. If at all possible send an email to this address with your telephone # and email address so we have an idea of how many to expect and can contact you if needed.

The dead of winter is the time to daydream about fishing some of PA's premier trout streams. Join us in January when guide Bill Anderson talks about the Little Juniata's transformation “From Sewer to Class A” trout stream. Bill has fished the Little J since 1978 and knows it well, having written articles about it as well as his recently-released book “Trout Boomer & the Little J”. Those who know this stream love it and its hard-fighting brownies. Come join us and daydream about warmer weather and your next visit to the Little J. Bill will be bringing copies of his book for sale.

On February 18, Patrick Campbell will regale us with stories of fly fishing for steelhead. Patrick is a guide on “Steelhead Alley”, from Ohio into northwest PA. He has been fly fishing for 34 years and chasing steelhead for much of that time. Join us at the Farm & Home Center for a respite from the bleak days of winter.
