Since 1989, the philosophy of The Feathered Hook has been simple: to help every person who comes to fly fish central Pennsylvania's streams to achieve their goals, catch more fish, and enjoy themselves all the more. We specialize in wild trout that are stream bred and raised. Our guiding includes both public and private water experiences. The Feathered Hook is centrally located to fly fish brown trout and brookies on the world-class limestone streams of Pennsylvania, including Penns Creek, Elk Creek, Pine Creek, Big Fishing Creek, and Spring Creek.
Located in the heart of Northern Amish country on the banks of Penns Creek, The Feathered Hook is a fly fisher's inn. We provide a tying area, fly fishing literature to read and an attached shop to meet your fly and tackle needs. Most importantly, we provide an atmosphere that will allow you to relax, enjoy yourself and forget about the rest of the world.
In the tiny Appalachian town of Coburn, Pennsylvania, life occurs at a different pace. Take your time and take it easy: the only rush should be to get to the stream. Look forward to seeing old friends and making some new ones.

4/14/19…..Grannoms are Hatching!
It has all finally begun!
Grannoms #12&14 are hatching and the fish are eating them! We also saw Hendricksons and Quill Gordons and Red Quill and Blue Quill and Crane Flies this morning…….did I mention that the fish were rising hard this morning!
The creek is murky with about 4 feet of visibility….and did I mention that the fish are rising?!
The water was 54 degrees at 10am.
Penns Creek Smallie! Nice work Matt!
Spring is here! And it’s time to Rumble!!
We have seen the beginnings of the Hendricksons(#12&14) and Quill Gordons(#12&14) and the Crane Flies and someone thought they saw a Grannom(#12&14) yesterday (unconfined).
Penns Creek is in the best shape of the year! Perfect flow for wading and the clarity is amazing!
3.9.2019….Early Season Hours
Things are picking up..Starting this week shop hours will be as seen below:
Saturday’s demo lineup at the Extravaganza.
3.8.2019….smells like spring..almost
Hello. We aren’t far off now. The future weather forecast indicates a break in the weather. Hopefully it’s here to stay.
Fishing has been good if you have been able to withstand the cold. We have been seeing midges, early black stoneflies, and blue wing olives. Not a bad way to ring in March.
Our Extravaganza is next weekend March 15-17.
Fly tying Demos
Nymph Rigging Demo
Streamer Fishing Demo
Come check out new products for the year. We have some very cool gear in the shop this year that we think will tickle your fancy.
Learn to tie Catskill Style March Brown with Todd “the fly tyer” Johnson at the Extravaganza.
Shop tyer Jim Shawley will be teaching how to tie a Woven Stonefly nymph during the Extravaganza.
We’ve been receiving lots of questions about ice and access into the Creek. The Woodward Gap Road to the Cherry Run section of the creek looks similar to the road to Poe…
Without chains, forget about it. Take the long route to Weikert and back to access the Cherry Run Section.
Tunnel road is clear.
Ingleby is generally clear as it has permanent residents. Access to Poe Paddy is just a short tredge downstream from Ingleby.
Happy weekend friends!
Hi. We have been continuing to work in the shop to get ready for spring. Saturday’s atmosphere in the shop was reminiscent of spring. Lots of familiar faces stopping by to show they survived yet another winter.
We are super excited about our Extravanganza. This year sales last all weekend, starting 9 am Friday March 15 and ending at 5pm Sunday March 17th.
As usual, Saturday will be the main event with fly tying, nymphing, leader building demos, food drinks and lots of fun. Bring your fishing buddies, family + kids and friends.
List of demos to come soon.
Guided trips have started rolling out the door finding plenty of success. Catching a fish on Penns Creek any day is rewarding. Doing it in February is even better. Thank to the folks that have come out and fished with us so far.
Why wait until “the season”, call to book your guided day and get yours now.
2/5/19…..A Brand New Year🎉
What will 2019 hold…..?! So exciting!
We have been working “hard” to get the shop ready for another year.

We are having our annual EXTRAVAGANZA the weekend of March 15-17.
Everything is on sale and MANY MANY items on CLEARANCE!
Hope to see y’all soon!
