Learn to Fly Fish Day on the Big Bushkill creek 
Resica Falls

Meeting time. Fly fishing instruction is scheduled to start at 8:30 am.   The club will be providing coffee and donuts for both students and club members. Club members are asked to come early, 7:30 am, to help with the set-up for the day's classes.  Please try to get to Resica  early so that you  can help get classes started and to welcome our guests.

Meeting Location:  Drive north on Rt. 402 to Resica falls.  Turn right into the Boy Scout reservation and down the road to the lodge.  There will be signs directing people.  The classes are held in the lodge.

Lunch:   The  club will provide lunch for both club members and class participants.

Need for a head count of club members.  We hope everyone in the club is coming, but we know that is not realistic.  In order to know how much food to buy for the lunches we should get as accurate a count as possible.   Please  email Todd at and let him know that you are coming.

Special Request.   Club members are asked to come early (7:30 am) to help set for the day's classes.The board would appreciate it if  club members volunteer to help out during the day.  Help will be needed for the set-up, cooking, casting instruction etc.

Flies needed.  Fly tiers, please tie up some flies over the next week and bring them to the LTFFD.  These will make nice presents for the students in the class.

Meeting time. 9 am, Saturday April 16th.

Meeting Location: The club will meet at the park just below the Rt. 191 bridge.
