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.
January SpeakerCome to our monthly meeting, on January 15, to hear Bob Pool talk about fly fishing for bass. He’s a great presenter and has probably caught more big bass on fly than all of us combined. This should be an entertaining and informative presentation for those of you looking to catch trophy bass on a fly rod.
