This event started off big, and grows every year. The fire company opened their kitchen last year and served hot meals for lunch, we had vendors selling rods and casting outdoors, its a really fun event. I know its a pretty good distance from the Catskills, but as always, everyone is welcome. CJ

It's actually closer than Roscoe for many of us. I'll be there, if the crick don't rise.

The Catskills, and all that surrounds its fly tying heritage--- has somehow become a misnomer. Maybe it should now be labeled Jerseyskills--or Pennskills. :lol:

Man---I guess you're right---a pretty good distance !! I Checked Mapquest; that's one hell of a long drive south into New Jersey---almost parallel with Allentown Pa.!

New York Staters---hello ??????

I guess I'm going to head for Joe's meeting in Syracuse, New York

I'm with you, Mike! I might try to work it into a little extended weekend steelhead trip.

John, I wish it was closer!

Best,

Tim

Geologically speaking, the Kittatinny Range is part of the Catskills. Only an aribrary political boundary separates the two.

I'll be there. Much closer than Roscoe.
