Chesapeake Women Anglers (CWA) is a women's fly fishing club with members residing in and around the greater Washington D.C. metropolitan area including MD, VA, DC and beyond.
We share skills by teaching each other while on the water and in the classroom and by writing articles for our quarterly newsletter. We meet monthly to fish on local waters in the mid-Atlantic/Chesapeake Bay area and by way of our destination trips explore more distant waters together (see CWA Calendar).  We partner with environmental groups to improve our waters, take part in community events, and socialize at our annual fall picnic, winter holiday party and spring kick-off meeting. Mostly we just love to fly fish and enjoy sharing all about it.
Become a member so you too can learn about the great places we fish, share the camaraderie and create your own stories. Membership is open to adult persons age 18 and over (see Membership). We hope to see you on the water!
