November 2015 Presidents Message

“Do you keep them?” Invariably, that is the question I’m asked when I tell people that I fly-fish. “No, I like to practice catch and release” is my usual response. With a puzzled look on their face, the follow up question…here it comes…“Well, if you’re not going to keep and eat them, why...

March 2016 Presidents Message

Welcome to our Tri-County Fly Fishers website. February proved to be a very busy month for the Club and March isn’t much different. I am pleased to report that as of our deadline for dues renewal, our membership for 2016 continues to be strong. Currently, including our life, honorary and over 85 members we are 70 strong! Our 2016 membership dropped by approximately 15 so not too bad considering and that is exciting! Thank you!

May 2016 Presidents Message

Welcome to our Tri-County Fly Fishers website. I think it’s safe to say, while not official, summer weather is upon us. While it’s been hot and somewhat steamy here, I just returned from a short trip to Colorado where it was 33 degrees and dumping up to 2 feet of snow in the high country! With this hot weather comes the annual migration north of...

June 2016 Presidents Message

Welcome to our Tri-County Fly Fishers website. This month, I thought I would take a few minutes and recap the Club’s first 6 months of the year. I like to do this for a couple of reasons. First, it gives recently joined members the opportunity to see what we’ve been up too and to get excited for what’s to come. Second, it gives the public some insight as to what our Club is all about and to possibly get involved. (click the "read more" tab to continue)

Who We Are

Welcome to our Tri-County Fly Fishers website. Our Club is an organization of men and women with many different backgrounds and convictions. Our connection is an intense interest in the sport of fly fishing. We have varying degrees of expertise in the sport and are eager to learn and teach as we continue to develop our skills. Many members have immense fly fishing knowledge and skills, and they are happy to share.

Our main focus of course, is fishing. Our Club organizes and conducts informal weekly outings. We target warm water fish species here in Florida, and salt-water species on the Gulf, East coast and South Florida. Many of us fish in the far reaches of the United States and the world for that matter.

Another huge aspect at the heart of our Club is the teaching and instruction of fly fishing, not only to members, but to children as well. This includes: tying flies and fly casting mostly. We started the TCFF Fly Casters and the TCFF Fly Tying groups which meet monthly and always have a great turnout. We are involved in various community outreach activities where we donate our time and resources to organizations requesting our help and expertise.

Another major focus is providing good quality speakers and presentations at our evening meetings. Our informative and educational presentations have included presentations on fly fishing Louisiana for bull redfish, kayak fishing Crystal River and fly fishing for Shad on the St. Johns River. Communication is also very important and I feel that In addition to providing “what’s happening” in the Club, our website is one of the best fly fishing Club websites on the net in providing excellent information related to our sport to our members.

Lastly, our Club social activities build comradery and it’s always a fun time when we get together. We kick off the year in January with our Winterfest social. Club members and wives enjoy a catered dinner and prize raffle and entertainment. We hold our Club picnic and bar-b-que typically in March complete with door prizes and a Club casting competition. I invite you to come check us out! Meeting locations and times can be found on our home page under “Meetings”.

October 2016 Presidents Message

Welcome back!  Can someone please tell me where the year went? It seems like just a couple of months ago we were planning the Club events and outings for the 2016.  And so it begins again. The board is already meeting to strategize and begin planning for 2017 activities, events and trips. So, we’re back at it again in full swing. Stay tuned.

My wife and I just returned from a 16 day vacation in Tuscany, Italy in which...
