Welcome to the Austin Fly Fishers
A Member Club of the International Federation of Fly Fishers
The Austin Fly Fishers is an Austin, Texas fly fishing club open to anyone interested in fly fishing. We are a non-profit organization concerned with conserving local waters and the wildlife that inhabit them, as well as promoting the sport and art of fly fishing. We actively support and contribute to various conservation efforts, charities, and youth programs, both nationwide, and in the Austin area. If you are not yet a member, and would like to learn more about the club, we invite you to attend one of our monthly meetings or participate in one of the many outings we organize throughout the year.
Outings IdeasHave an idea for an outing? The club is always interested in hearing about fly fishing destinations that might interest our membership. If you have an idea for a club outing, and especially if you are interested in hosting a trip, then we would love to hear from you. Please contact our Outings Officer to discuss your idea, and we'll see if we can put it on the calendar!
Club MeetingsOur monthly meetings are held at the Northwest Recreation Center on the third Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm. For those interested, casting instruction and fly tying begin at 6:00. See the Membership page for more details

North Padre Outing - Sept 20-25We’ll be fishing around Corpus Christi for this outing. The area offers excellent access to bay, surf, jetty, nearshore, and offshore fishing. Participants are welcome to participate whenever they like and to choose the accommodations that best suit them. For those choosing to camp, the Mustang Island State Park is a good choice. The Park offers good camping amenities with surf fishing on-site. If you’d rather not camp, plenty of rental properties are available nearby in Port Aransas or Corpus Christi at offseason rates. For non-fishing family members, there are plenty of activities available in Corpus. Those planning to participate should email Nils Pearson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Details for gatherings, group fishing, and guide fishing opportunities will be shared with participants as the outing approaches.
