Double Haul @ The Fly Fishing Show in Philly

Saturday brings us the last of The Fly Flying Show series for the year in a brand new venue.  With spring just getting ready to bust loose, this show puts us here a month out from all the opening days though, generally, we like fishing all year (if we have the temps to do so) for trout.  I'm going to guess that it will be a well attended show.  They've managed to get the legendary Joe Humphreys out of retirement to do special presentations. 

It will surely be fun as we'll be there to open things off at the show tying for the Catskills Fly Tyers Guild

The featured tyers for both days will be

9:00 AM  to 12:00 :  John Czifra and Kyle Majikas

12:00 PM to 3:00 pm :  Jessica Lettich and Tim Morris

3:00 PM to  6:00 PM :  Andy Brasko and
Mike Nutto


9:00 AM to 12:00 PM :  John Bonsera and Allen Landheer 

12:00 PM to Closing:   Andy Brasko and Tim Mahoney.

It's a great guild to be in and it takes nothing to join it.  A piece of fabric in your pocket that has Alexander Hamilton's face on it is all it takes for the year to join.  Plus, there's quite a tradition and many tyers got their start through the guild.  Most importantly, it is a great way to donate some time, by tying at these shows, to keep the traditions of fly tying alive and well.

Hope to see some of you at the show.

  1. If you have not seen Joe speak drop whatever you are doing when he is up to catch it. I do not care who you are or what you think you know, I guarantee you will be entertained and learn something. You boys make sure to drink a few dozen beers for me....sorry I am missing this.
