Some Upcoming sessions of KOFNWNJ in 2020
As this comes as a shock to so many of us at this time, I am deeply saddened to announce the recent passing of our Kids on the Fly NWNJ Co-Founder and teacher Robert Hopken on Saturday December 7th, 2019.
Kids on the Fly NWNJ Will not be having a meeting this April and are working on getting dates together for the next 6 months so that everyone can plan ahead; but we have do have some exciting news!The Catskill Fly Tyers Guild is starting a Catskill Kids on the Fly chapter that will meet at the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum at 10:00 A.M. before their regularly scheduled meetings!
Happy new year! The next meeting of KOFNWNJ will be January 5th!
Just a reminder that this Saturday, December 1st is the next meeting of Kids on the Fly in Lafayette NJ! We are meeting at Whitewater flies in Lafayette N.J. located in “the shoppes at Lafayette!”
Tying starts at 9am and as always there’s no cost to tie!
We had another great session at WhiteWater flies last week for Kids on the Fly NWNJ. The kids tied one fly to fish with and one to wear! Our November meeting will be held the SECOND Saturday of the month which is November 10th, to coincide with the kids event being held at the Shoppes at Lafayette! Its going to be a fun filled event for kids so be sure to stop on by. We will be starting at 10am that day.
We had a full house during our April Session and are looking forward to May. The kids tied a variety of patterns including the Woolly Bugger as a warmup pattern for the new tyers. The new Regal Vises donated by the Catskill Fly Tyers Guild make the tying sessions a breeze and the kids have alot of fun using them. Thanks again to Greg at Whitewater Flies for hosting our sessions every month and we will see you in May!
Thank you to everyone who came out to tie on this past St. Patrick's Day! Here are a few photos from our session and once again we would like to thank Greg of Whitewater Flies, The Catskill Fly Tyers Guild and all of our volunteers for helping us make each session great!
