ABOUT WVFF

 

Our sport is a challenging and enjoyable way to fool fish, and if skill and luck coincide, we play and handle our quarry properly and release them to live in a place we love. 

A person may learn to tye and cast a fly in a few short lessons, and then through study and observation secure an introduction to the world that exists above, in and below the waters surface, but . . . " To achieve mastery is to rise above the need to catch fish."  Howell Raines

What We Do ?  

  • We get together to meet with other flyfishers or those new to the sport and share fishing stories and the company of like minded people that enjoy waving sticks at fish.
  • At each meeting we have the pleasure of listening to and questioning our Special Presenter.  Bring paper and pen, you'll walk out with some good tips and ideas.
  • The WVFF participates in a variety of fly fishing and tying outreach programs that introducesadults and children how to camouflage their first hook. 
  • We have a booth at the Leavenworth Salmonfest and display fly tying techniques, display live entomological samples from the Icicle Creek and talk to visitors about conservation and habitat concerns. 
  • Two of our members also teach a Continuing Ed class at Wenatchee Valley College each spring.
  • We organize Outings that gives our members another reason to inflate their pontoons or launch the John Boats on a different stretch of water.  These events range from large pot lucks to small groups getting together to collectively try to fool the fish. 
  • Our Photo Album occasionally demonstrates their level of success (or not) and displays the beauty of the region we fish with a fly.

You are most welcome to attend one of our meetings without obligation.  Come and meet the other locals that think catching a fish with a minute barbless hook, wrapped in fur and feathers, is fun.
