Last Wednesday we had a moderately slow evening at Coatesville. We had 6 vets tying flies under the guidance of 13 volunteers. The tying was pretty good, the chow above average. Sloppy Joe’s:

If anybody tells you that PHWFF is all about fly fishing they’ve forgotten a key element of our enduring success. Brats, sausages, venison sticks, pizzas, hamburgers cookies, and chips all factor into a successful night with vets whose tastes occasionally seek “simpler” fare! Our low cuisine is an attractant, especially when its served outside, off a grill. 
 
We tied a variety of our favorite pond/salt patterns:
Tied by the usual suspects:
Coming Soon:
 
1. Fly tying and vet recruitment, Main Dining Hall, Tuesday 7/16, 11-1PM
2. Fishing Outing:
Our volunteers include and are surrounded by heroes every week. Come and meet one. Give me a call!
 
Thanks for everything!
