Flies of Future Past*

“We can only truly know where we are going if we know where we have been.”
-I said that.

The Delaware Valley Fly Fishers Club is proud to welcome our guest speaker Scott Cesari to our April 23, 2014 (7:30 PM) meeting. Scott will be sharing his research and knowledge of the evolution of flies used in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. With some Pocono flies dating back to the mid-19th Century Scott has traced their roots back to the 1400’s! In addition to offering this historical perspective on flies Scott will share insights into the impact and contributions that Pocono Fly Fishing has made on this angling sport throughout North America. Scott’s ability to present this information of artful fly tying and practical angling in a coherent context will surely earn him recognition as an angler who moves our sport forward.

While a relative newcomer to fly fishing (when compared to some of our more senior club members – and you know who you are) Scott has shown what can be accomplished in a short time when we set our hearts and minds to our endeavors. Scott has excelled in fly tying, winning the Pennsylvania State fly Tying Championship in 2006 and received several medals recognizing his tying skills from the Federations of Fly Fishers’ contest that same year. Scotts skills in tying realistic patterns have earned him recognition from the International Fly Tying Symposium and Show, the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum, and the Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Museum and many other groups.

We hope you can join us at this meeting and bring a friend – Guests are always welcome!

Our meetings are held at the Yardley VFW Post1444 Yardley-Newtown Road, Yardley, PA 19067.

Dave Allbaugh’s “Fishing The Wet Fly”

The Delaware Valley Fly Fishers Club is proud to present Dave Allbaugh as our guest speaker on March 26, 2014 (7:30 PM). Dave is a master wet fly angler, guide and native son of Pennsylvania. Born and raised in Johnstown, PA., Dave has availed himself of many of the finest limestone streams found throughout Central Pennsylvania and productive freestone streams of North Central Pennsylvania, and it is within these magnificent settings that Dave offers his “Wet Fly Water Guide” guide services and personalized lessons in wet fly trout fishing.

Fishing with wet flies is arguably one of the oldest methods recorded, and while our Pennsylvania waters have a robust history of wet fly fishing, in more recent times very few of us have actually practiced these truly classic techniques. Dave Allbaugh will bring his multi-media presentation to introduce us to a few of the more storied trout streams in the Commonwealth and provide us with a detailed discussion on equipment, flies, leaders and tactics to use – year round – for successfully fishing with wet flies.

Count this as a presentation you don’t want to miss.
We hope you will join us and Bring a Friend – Guests are always welcome!
