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.
