Pizza and Fun night

Pizza and fun meeting

Join us Wednesday June 24 at 7:30 pm for our annual pizza party.  At this meeting, we will be have beverages and pizza with various toppings. We will be discussing how our fishing is going so far and upcoming events. This usually is one of our more interesting meetings as we do not have a specific presenter and talk about fishing in general.

Our main attraction for the June meeting is the award of a fly rod in our members raffle. This year the prize is a Cabela’s Three Forks fly rod, 7’-6” in length, 3 weight of three-piece construction. This is a great rod for fishing small mountain streams and brooks.  This raffle, for members only, is based on attendance during the past year.  Therefore, the more meetings you attend the more entries you have, thus increasing your odds of winning.

Wet lines lead to tight lines.

The Delaware Valley Fly Fishers Club will be holding our On the Water Fly Fishing Class this Saturday, April 26, 2014, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, on the Little Lehigh Creek. The fee is $50.00 – and includes lunch. If you are interested in attending this class, be sure to call us to reserve your spot (and your lunch) at: (215) 245-0677.

This is a fantastic class on a fantastic piece of trout water! When we begin our session on the doorstep of the Heritage Fly Shop you will be guided through instructions including how to read water (and how to fish that water based on temperature, flow rate, terrain and turbidity). You will learn how to cast under, over and around obstacles so that you can cast using weighted flies, wet flies and dry flies (and combinations that really work). This is an intensive day of fly fishing that is only interrupted by a lunch, then back to fishing.

Class participants are encouraged to bring along their rod and reel, clean waders, and to be prepared for any weather conditions as the class is held rain or shine. Remember also, because You WILL Be Fishing, a valid Pennsylvania Fishing License with a Trout Stamp is required!

Fly Fishing Class on the Little Lehigh

This section of the Little Lehigh is a slice of Trout-Heaven-On-Earth offering plenty of shade, riffles, overgrowth and undercut banks – enough variety of conditions to keep you busy all day long. The park itself (part of the Allentown, PA., parks system) has ample parking and bathroom facilities. One of the nicest things about this park is that you will forget very quickly that you are within city limits.

Whether you are just starting out, or looking to gain some added experience and insight, you will find this class will meet your needs. As a bonus, Dave Bittner’s The Heritage Fly Shop is located right where our class will be held. Dave always has the latest information regarding hatches and water conditions and a well stocked assortment of gear and flies to help you catch fish… so while you are there, be sure to stop in and say hello – if you intend to fish the Little Lehigh again, Dave will be a man you want to make friends with!

The Heritage Fly Shop, and our On Water Fly Fishing Class are located at: 2643 Fish Hatchery Rd., Allentown, PA 18103 – just about 5 minutes off of either the PA Turnpike Northeast Extension (Rte. 476) or Rte. 309. We hope you can join us!
