For all those who are new to fly fishing and all want to learn more. Delaware Valley Fly Fishers will hold its introduction to Fly Fishing instructional class on Saturday March 26th from 10:00am – 4:00pm. This is a great day to learn the basics of fly fishing. Some of the items we go over include e flies (wet, dry, nymphs, streamers), ways to fish (wet method vs dry method), and even have casting demonstrations and instruction. Beyond that it is a great way to make friends and a good day to get out and have fun before trout season begins.

April is an exciting month for the Delaware Valley Fly Fishers Club. The season has opened for local trout waters (and bass are now catch and release only for the duration of their breeding season). We will be holding our regular meeting later this month where, along with our guest speaker, there will no doubt be plenty of stories and photos of our early season catch. The Club will also be holding its “On-Water” fly fishing class along the banks of the Little Lehigh. More on these to come!
April marks the time of year when fly fishers buzz with activity around here – and the Delaware Valley Fly Fishers Club makes for a pretty good place to learn the tips, tricks, and insight of local waters to make the most of your angling season ahead.
With that in mind – I’ll be keeping this post short so I can go out and get my line in the water, but I’ll leave you first with this thought: When you find yourself elbow to elbow with other anglers please encourage them to visit our Club. Membership growth is the ONLY way we can continue to make our fine programs available, so put a few of your Club business cards in your vest and hand them out with a smile and an invitation.
Much of what the Delaware Valley Fly Fishers has to offer has been nicely summarized by one of our founding members, and Executive Director, Jerry Girard Sr. Please enjoy this brief message from Jerry, and share the Delaware Valley Fly Fishers’ message with others to help build our membership ranks.
