I was wondering since there are quite a few Forum members who live withn 200 miles of the Delaware if it might be possible to have a get together up there sometime between May 01 and June 30? I know of one cabin that can be rented for a very modest sum and it sleeps three. I also know of a couple other motels where the lodging won't require a bank loan.
I do know all the rivers; main stem, East & West branches, Beaverkill & Willowemoc intimately and would be glad to poing guys and gals in the right direction and/or go out and fish. There are a few lodges like Delaware River Club & West Branch Angler that rent drift boats and have lodging that sleeps 2 - 4 guys for fair prices.
A get together during the week would provide the most pleasure and the least competition. I can put up links to lodging and dining too. Anyone interested?
I have a two man kayak I'd loan out as well as a pontoon boat and of course I have the Hyde.

I would love to revisit the area with you however Spence has claimed a goodly portion of my annual allotment of "gone fishin days" especially in the timeframe you have specified. That being said I will definitely pencil in Troutnut Jam on the D 2015.

Matt, keep me posted, and I'll try to get up then. If I remember correctly, Artie had some luck on the Delaware fishing a fly I sent him in '09 and I'd like to meet him to see if he's still fishing the pattern and to catch up in general.
Artie, the emerger--it's still working for me anyway. Hope all is well with you.
