Fishermen and Fisherwomen are invited to come join George Robertson, Mike Landis, and Dave Bushnell in the kind of fishing experiences they have shared with campers earlier in the summer.  George will demonstrate fly fishing at the pond.  Mike and Dave will trailer the camp canoes to the Juniata River (Saturday and Sunday) for some great smallmouth bass fishing.   Evening time will be for fishing tips and fishing techniques.   Dave will demonstrate how to make your own spinning rod.  No matter what the weather we will find places to fish.   Bring your own canoe if you have one (with an up to date launch permit).  The camp has seven canoes.    Fishing licenses are needed for anyone age 16 and older.
