October 2017 Presidents Message

Welcome. After a brief summer break we’re back at it in full swing. Please check out the Club website “blog” page for information or updates on upcoming events, trips and outings.

 

Our regularly scheduled business meetings began again at Pennbrooke Fairways on the 6th of September. Our September evening presentation was a presentation by Scott Henett on "Fly Fishing Cockroach Bay Preserve State Park”. We had an excellent turnout! This month’s presentation will be by Capt. Mark Benson on “The American Shad of the St. Johns River” and should be a good one! The presentation will be back at the Wildwood Community Center. We’ll also have fly casting out on the lawn and fly tying upstairs, both beginning at 5:30pm.

Welcome to our Tri-County Fly Fishers website. Our Club is an organization of men and women with many different backgrounds and convictions. Our connection is an intense interest in the sport of fly fishing. We have varying degrees of expertise in the sport and are eager to learn and teach as we continue to develop our skills. Many members have immense fly fishing knowledge and skills, and they are happy to share.

Our main focus of course, is fishing. Our Club organizes and conducts informal weekly outings. We target warm water fish species here in Florida, and salt-water species on the Gulf, East coast and South Florida. Many of us fish in the far reaches of the United States and the world for that matter.

Another huge aspect at the heart of our Club is the teaching and instruction of fly fishing, not only to members, but to children as well. This includes: tying flies and fly casting mostly. We started the TCFF Fly Casters and the TCFF Fly Tying groups which meet monthly and always have a great turnout. We are involved in various community outreach activities where we donate our time and resources to organizations requesting our help and expertise.

Another major focus is providing good quality speakers and presentations at our evening meetings. Our informative and educational presentations have included presentations on fly fishing Louisiana for bull redfish, kayak fishing Crystal River and fly fishing for Shad on the St. Johns River. Communication is also very important and I feel that In addition to providing “what’s happening” in the Club, our website is one of the best fly fishing Club websites on the net in providing excellent information related to our sport to our members.

Lastly, our Club social activities build comradery and it’s always a fun time when we get together. We kick off the year in January with our Winterfest social. Club members and wives enjoy a catered dinner and prize raffle and entertainment. We hold our Club picnic and bar-b-que typically in March complete with door prizes and a Club casting competition. I invite you to come check us out! Meeting locations and times can be found on our home page under “Meetings”.
