Welcome to the Tri-County Fly Fishers Website.
Tri-County Fly Fishers, Inc. is a not for profit Club whose members have a true love for fly-fishing. We welcome anyone who wants to learn how to fly fish and gain experience in the art of fly tying; and become an active member of the fly-fishing Club.
This Club is made up of about eighty members from beginners to those with 50+ years of fly-fishing and tying experi-ence. Fishing interests range from bluegills and bass to redfish and tarpon, with an occasional rainbow or brown trout from up north or out west thrown in. Today, membership is drawn from permanent and seasonal residents of those in and around the Florida counties of Lake, Sumter and Marion.

October 2017 Presidents Message

Welcome. After a brief summer break we’re back at it in full swing. Please check out the Club website “blog” page for information or updates on upcoming events, trips and outings.

 

Our regularly scheduled business meetings began again at Pennbrooke Fairways on the 6th of September. Our September evening presentation was a presentation by Scott Henett on "Fly Fishing Cockroach Bay Preserve State Park”. We had an excellent turnout! This month’s presentation will be by Capt. Mark Benson on “The American Shad of the St. Johns River” and should be a good one! The presentation will be back at the Wildwood Community Center. We’ll also have fly casting out on the lawn and fly tying upstairs, both beginning at 5:30pm.

Recent Newspaper Listing of the Ponds That Can Be Fished In The Villages

Recent Newspaper Listing of the Ponds That Can Be Fished In The Villages

This is a list of all the ponds you can fish in The Villages. It was in the newspaper. Anyone can fish these ponds but, some ponds you can only fish on certain sides. You cannot fish ponds on golf courses and no fishing in Lake Sumter. The ponds we fish as a club have been Bonita and Summerhill. For detailed maps see The Villages Freshwater Club website and look under bank fishing.

Oct. 21, 2017... Mangrove Coast Fly Fishers (MCFF) 13th annual Fall Fly Fishing Challenge

Oct. 21, 2017... Mangrove Coast Fly Fishers (MCFF) 13th annual Fall Fly Fishing Challenge
Guys,
   Here's the info on this year's tournament, hope you're able to fish it. Feel free to share it with anyone else that you think may want to fish.  Last year we upped the value of the awards (gift certificates) and added extra awards in the Open Divison (Grand Champion Runner Up) and the Angler division (5 places in that division now). Out of town anglers that pre register can skip the angler meeting on Friday night which should make it easier for them. All that plus a great raffle and awards luncheon. Hope to see you there. Thanks
Rick Grassett
