JFFTC= Joppa Flats Fly Tying Club.

A group of folks who pound the shores around PI together who care to hook up and tie flies a few times a year. There have been several meetings already over the past couple of seasons at different venues, mostly casual, at private homes and the occasional restaurant. The unit is
headed up by the elegant, yet ever precocious President Doug Burgess.

I hope Mr Burgess can eloaborate on my description of JFFTC if it's not quite accurate. Oops, it seems his post slipped in before mine.

I'm sure the FFF will offer it's full support to this great club. Looking forward to the event.

It does NOW! Thanks for the clarification, prez. I've had a bit of that Joppa mud on my waders over the last several years, I will definitely attend!

psst... JFFT.org is available!

Let me know if you want us to host your site (free to select non-profits or non-existants like you). We're upgrading our hosting service so it will really be no problem at all.

Hawkeye,
Gotta get you out to Joppa. You'll never go to Chatham again. Have you been there before? Consider this an offer for a morning in my scow up heah.

Awesome! I will take you up on that. The closest I've come to Joppa is the mouth of the Merrimack on the jetty by the state park - no luck and it was quite a zoo.

Lefty,
"Elegant"? "Precocious"?
HUH!
This doesn't bode well for your $189.00 membership fee.
