We would like to encourage company sponsors to donate money for this event. Any company donating $50 or more will be listed as a sponsor on the website and at the PATCON.

 Camping available Wednesday - Sunday.

No animals, please, as my Peacock is more than sufficient to annoy all but us.:)

The PATCON will be held at

*Use the front entrance for those camping. As you cross the second set of cattle guards, camp to the right in the area with fruit trees alongside the fence and a fire pit in the middle.  For those not camping,  come in the side entrance by the graveyard and parking will be in the area of the two tobacco barns.

Two Altoids tins, each containing an assortment (18-20 or so) of trout flies.  All of the flies were tied using Peacock Herl taken from a certain bird's plumage that resides at Dixieland.  Worry not, I didn't pluck those feathers.......As I understand, the feathers were found there on the ground, and no Peacocks were harmed in the acquisition. :)

Most of the collection are standard dry-fly and nymph patterns, and peacock Herl is one of the most popular ingredients, worldwide, for tying trout flies.  The picture I'm attaching is another standard pattern, one I'm calling "Nat's Ass's Peacock Gnat".  This one has been field tested in the Appalachian Redoubt, and is a proven fish catcher.

*Donated and tied by Jaques Hamma 


* Except for my Peacock's donation......:)

  1. Sounds good! Would love to attend! (I've got to work on cost and logistics).

  2. Can't miss it? See you then.

    1. Yes, Sir! No winning two major prizes anymore, though.....:)

  3. Looks awesome, and I'll be coming and bringing the clan. Do you have to have the admission in check form, or can we pay through PayPal or other means? Also, any local input on lodging? We're not really set up for camping (yet), so we'll be staying off-premises, and the two hotels in Tarboro have fairly sketchy reviews.

    I haven't heard complains about either. I've stayed at the Best Western when it was the Holiday Inn and that is where most stay who come to our yearly reunion. See you!

  15. Brock,
    Ga Force on Force will be happy to run some short intro type classes on Friday if there is interest.
    I can do some CQB instruction and have some time to talk about the ICS system.


    1. That would be great. Send me an email when you have a chance detailing the particulars of what you would like me to add to this link. Thanks.

  16. What is the schedule for Patcon 7?

    1. Saturday's schedule is posted above and there may be more. Also, it looks like

      "Ga Force on Force will be happy to run some short intro type classes on Friday if there is interest. I can do some CQB instruction and have some time to talk about the ICS system."

      Could be more Friday also.

  17. Saturday's tentative schedule has been updated

  18. Friday's schedule posted and raffle prizes added.

  19. Received PATCON funds from Jaques Hamma and two tins of flies for the raffle which have been updated above. Thanks.

    1. You're welcome, sir. And thank you for hosting such an outstanding event. Looks like you're putting together a first-rate schedule!

    2. Thank you and hope you can come.

    3. The three you have pictured are top to bottom, the B-Rock P-Cock Elk Hair Caddis, Nat's Ass Peacock Gnat, and Nightwatcher's Crackle-Back. Not pictured but included are the Appalachian Redoubt Tellico-Schmellico Nymph, the Tarboro Buzzball, & two of Dave Hise's (Casters fly shop in Hickory) Heterogenius Nymph (my most dependable BIG-fish catcher, hands down) and his Eggi-Juan Kenobi. Plus, there are some various peacock midges.

      Right now, it looks ~90% like I'll be coming Thurs-Sun. I might give a fly-casting seminar (for novices) Friday around dusk, if you think there's any interest. Free to those so inclined.


    4. That's great and you'll have to tell me which one is named after my Peacock when you get here. :) The seminar sounds like fun, so 6 to 7 or and is there a charge? I'll go ahead and post this when you let me know. Thanks.
