Club Outing— St. Croix River
Nearly every month, the club organizes a fishing outing.. These fishing trips encourage new and old members to explore the wonderful fishing that the Twin Cities area has to offer. Several trips are scheduled for the entire weekend, while others are single day trips to areas near the Twin Cities. Club outings are for panfish, smallmouth bass or trout. Click Here for More Info>>
:: TYING ONE ON FOR OVER 50 YEARS
Want to swap stories and learn more about fly fishing and fly tying? Since its inception more than 50 years ago, the St. Paul Fly Tier’s & Fishermen’s Club has been a source of learning, sharing and activities related to fly tying and fishing. The club welcomes anyone who is interested in fly tying and fly fishing.
:: FLY TYING
Many of our members are master fly tiers. You can hone your skills and learn from the best, while sharing your thoughts and ideas with others. We tie all types of flies, for many species of fish–not just trout. Our club strives to be innovative and educational by giving fly tying demonstrations and instruction at local youth events, trade shows, and community education.
:: WE DON'T JUST TIE FLIES
In addition to swapping stories, telling lies, and tying flies, we also have Program Nights (with guest speakers & presentations) on the first Thursday of the month. We present programs at the first meeting of the month from January through May. Local and national experts present on such diverse topics as: fly casting, stewardship of the land and water, entomology, tying for specific species of fish, and how to double the length of that fish you caught when no one was looking.
We also schedule Club Outings throughout the year. We strive for excellent adventure and camaraderie with plenty of good food served to all that partake in these wonderful outings. We wade, float, boat, and pontoon locally, nationally--even internationally. Our many outings during the year (see our Event Calendar) wrap a day of fishing around a great mid-day meal prepared and shared by our members. So whether you’ve fly-fished for decades, or just wondered what all the fuss is about, visiting our meetings can’t help but make you smile, bad puns notwithstanding.
We also support local fly fishing events, education, and conservation efforts. Members have turned out in recent years to volunteer their time and materials at school programs and county fairs, stream clean-ups, public programs such as the Great Waters Expo and Game Fair, and on behalf of the Kinnickinnic Land Trust in River Falls, Wisconsin. Our goal, as always, is to promote conservation of our natural resources.
Join us this Thursday, we hope to see you there!
