Upcoming Meeting - November 1, 2018

Upcomming Outings


October: Cedar Grove
"Wild Trout"

October 20, 2018

Important that you confirm your plan to attend to make sure that I have enough Coffee and Muffins!

Our next outing is scheduled for Saturday, October 20, 2018.

We will meet at Grizzly Falls Picnic Area for Coffee and Muffins between 8-9AM.

This section of the Kings River offers miles of productive water; most folks will fish above Boyden Cave, others will try their luck at the end of the road.

Don’t forget to bring a lunch! I recommend that we meet around 1PM again at the Grizzly Fall Picnic Area to share stories and pictures of our catch and the wonderful scenery!

If tradition holds; the best fishing will occur an hour or so before sunset.

I ask that everyone sends me copies of their pics, so we can impress everyone with a great Fly Dope article.

See you there,

Tight Lines,


Who We Are

Fresno Fly Fishers for Conservation is the oldest fly fishing club west of the Mississippi River. Fresno Fly Fishers is a non-profit organization whose mission is to encourage and assist those who desire to learn more about the art of fly-fishing. Our club includes some of the finest fisherman, fly tier’s, fly casters, and professional guides in the Central Valley, and is comprised of people of all ages, from beginner to expert level.

Our Mission

We are a FEDERATION OF FLY FISHERS affiliated club, a national organization whose goal, like ours, is to promote the wonderful sport of fly-fishing as well as protect our natural resources. We promote catch and release, education, conservation, and above all, encourage and help those who desire to learn more about all aspects of fly-fishing.
Fly Fishers for Conservation (FFFC) was organized in 1961 by a group of devoted fly fishers deeply concerned with the preservation of trout and all game fish, their environment, and the quality of fishing. Our club has maintained two goals since that time: To foster and promote the sport of angling with artificial flies. To protect, conserve and increase our angling resources.


Fly Fishers for Conservation is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt non-profit organization. This means you can use your contribution as a tax deduction. The club gets revenue from member-ship dues and the annual fundraiser dinner. We try to contribute to conservation issues in the area and to our youth with our Trout in the Classroom program, the No Child Left Inside program and by holding a Youth Fly-Fishing Academy annually. The club is al-ways in need of funds. Please consider donating. You may send a check to Fly Fishers for Conservation at 100 E. Sierra, PMB 3310, Fresno, CA 93710. Your donations will be greatly appreciated and they will help the club fulfill its obligations.

Tim Wade, owner and guide for North Fork Anglers, has been guiding, instructing and assisting fly fishers in the Yellowstone and Cody, Wyoming region for almost 35 years. Tim founded North Fork Anglers in 1984 and still loves to see his guests hook up with a native Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout, or fight a monster Brown on the Lower Shoshone. He has taught and written extensively about fly fishing, fly tying, fly casting and entomology, and shared his knowledge of trout behavior in speaking engagements across the country. He is fortunate to have some of the best fly fishing guides in the business working for him…all his guides love to fly fish, love to make their guests better anglers and love the wild trout resource in Wyoming and elsewhere. He specializes in instruction, casting and learning the water infinitely well. He is also an accomplished fly tier and has invented numerous trout and saltwater patterns, including the infamous North Fork Special and Ho Candy
