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.

Floating islands with beautiful flowering plants in certain ponds in The Villages are more functional than you think.

I have noticed these floating mats of plants on several small ponds on the golf courses but, I thought they were there just for their beauty until I was recently fishing with Randy DeSanto and he showed me pictures he took when they were placing a mat in Mira Mesa pond.

Welcome back to our snowbirds and thanks to all members who have chosen to be part of the Tri-County Fly Fishers Club. I'm happy to say that we are off to a fantastic start in the New Year and I'm looking forward to another successful year in 2015. Our membership has grown to about 88 members currently and I'm confident that a good majority of those members will renew for 2015. As a reminder, 2015 membership dues should be paid by April 1st. We have been able to line up some good quality speakers, exciting programs, fishing outings and field trips already for the coming year which I'm sure you will all enjoy. Please visit the Club Calendar Page for more information. As always, if you have ideas, would like to join a committee or have speakers/programs in mind, please bring it to my or any board member's attention .....

I know we covered reels in a previous column but not to confuse the issue I discussed the usual and quite ordinary reels we use today in fly fishing.  Today we will introduce you to some very specialized reels you may not have heard of.
