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.
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.
Fly Fish Texas - March 8, 2014This event will be held at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center on March 8, 2014. TFFC is located about four miles east of Athens and 75 miles southeast of Dallas. Aimed at the novice fly fisher, Fly Fish Texas is designed to teach you how to tie a fly, cast it and catch a fish with it—all in the same day. More information about this event can be found here.
Granger Lake - March 15, 2014Granger Lake is a shallow reservoir that is fed by the San Gabriel River. Crappie is the most popular sportfish in this reservoir and large numbers of legal-size crappie are present.
