February 21st Speaker – Jeff Currier - Starts at 7PM

“Fly Fishing Adventures from Africa – Tigerfish and More”

As if we didn’t already think Jeff Currier was crazy.  In 2005 Jeff cashed in 180,000 airline miles for two tickets to Africa.  He and his wife Granny then proceeded to load the backpacks and set off for the Dark Continent for two months with no reservations.  Why?  It was time to catch the exotic and toothy tigerfish.  They crossed Africa by means of decrepit buses, hitchhiking and leaky boats to the remote regions of Botswana, Namibia and other African countries.  And they pummeled the tigerfish!

The grueling adventure was such a success that Jeff has returned to Africa many times.  Sit back in awe when he shows you Nile Perch from Egypt, fly fishing the surf of Gabon, the yellowfish rivers of Lesotho, the Sudanese flats of the Red Sea and monster tigerfish from Tanzania.  This is an incredibly entertaining must see show!

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.
