Welcome to the Tri-County Fly Fishers Club Website.
Tri-County Fly Fishers Club 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.

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!

The Story Behind Florida's Coastal Water Polution

"RED ALERT"

I HOPE YOU ARE AS DISGUSTED BY THIS AS I AM!

Guys...we touched on this in last Wednesdays business meeting and several of you were concerned with the dumping of toxic waste from Lake Okeechobee into our waterways. This has actually been going on for years but has come to a head over the past couple of months. This is serious and the dumping and resulting polution of both coasts is putting a lot of people who depend on fishing and tourism to make a living, out of business, not to mention killing off habitat, fish and wildlife.  I came across an article that pretty much explains what is going on and where it stems from. The article is entitled "When Charity That Begins at Home, Wrecks the Home: US Sugar Corporation and the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation'' published 02/29/2016.

 Here  is an excerpt and to read the entire story, please visit:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/alan-farago/when-charity-that-begins_b_9341662.html

"The vast toilet in Florida called Lake Okeechobee is overflowing. The lake is the largest in Florida and also defines the political geography of one of the nation's most politically influential states. Historic January rainfall elevated lake water levels a foot above the safety zone in the middle of winter, the season the lake is normally allowed to dry down in anticipation of coming rains. Because of concentrated drainage basins upstream and downstream, too, where sugarcane is grown, a foot of rainfall translates to a four-foot rise in lake levels. After unprecedented winter rainfall and to relieve pressure on the aging dike, the state and the US Army Corps of Engineers opened the floodgates of hell on downstream communities. Beginning in late January, more than 60,000 gallons per second of filthy water began spewing towards billions of dollars of downstream real estate and tourism-dependent businesses on both Florida coasts."
