About Us

The Kitsap Fly Anglers formed in 1988 in Kitsap County, Washington, USA. The first few meetings were gatherings of up to 15 people who met outdoors at the Waterfront Park in Poulsbo, WA. Word of mouth soon brought more members and within a few months the number of people at the meetings forced a move to a larger gathering place. The club membership has since stabilized at about 35 members, most of whom live in Kitsap, Mason, or Jefferson Counties.  

 
General Meetings
The members and guests of Kitsap Fly Anglers meet on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:00 PM at the Island Lake Park, 1087 NW Island Lake Road, Poulsbo, WA. These meetings are informally structured, but we usually start with the President's summary of club events followed by an open floor for the introduction of first time guests. Next come the fishing reports from the members at large and any announcements from the committee chairs.
 
At each meeting we have a program that relates to fly fishing. Fortunately, there are many people talented in the art, craft, and sport of fly fishing that make their home in the Pacific Northwest. Speakers may be fly fishing columnists and writers, conservationists, representatives from Trout Unlimited or the Federation of Fly Fishers, fly fishing guides, or from many other related backgrounds. And periodically we get updates from the Washington Department of Wildlife and Fisheries as well.

Events and Activities

One common purpose of any club is sharing information and interests. At Kitsap Fly Anglers we do this by putting together club outings to Gibbs Lake, Walker Lake, Chopaka Lake, Lake Lenice, or the Yakima River for Rainbows; the Soleduc River, the Hoh River, the Elwha River, or the Hoko River for Steelhead; Chico Creek beach on Dyes Inlet for late summer Chums; or the both wild and resident Coho from the beach at Point-No-Point Lighthouse in Hansville or Lynnwood beach on Bainbridge Island. These are, of course, merely some examples of the many places where fly fishing opportunities are excellent in this part of the Northwest. You'll get all sorts of free advice on the right fly, the best holes, and how to place that backcast from your fellow anglers--some of whom are real old-timers in this area.

Parties are to be had twice a year; at Christmas time and in the waning days of summer. Whether it's a Holiday feast of smoked Chinook, fresh-baked ham and turkey, and the trimmings or scorched hot dogs and fries watching a summer sunset behind the Olympic Mountains from Hood Canal, you're sure to enjoy yourself.
