The Spokane Fly Fishers meet on the second Wednesday, September – April, of every month at 7 pm.
Location: St. Francis School, 1104 W. Heroy
Meetings usually consist of a guest tier before the meeting, a brief business report, and a guest speaker. We always have a small raffle to support our video library. For our March meeting we have our conservation raffle to support various projects through out the year. November is our fly auction which is a large part of the clubs support. December is the annual Christmas party with plenty of great food and gifts for all. Of course, St. Nick makes an appearance. Our March meeting is the Conservation raffle and April is our ever popular Extravaganza. We hold our May Awards Picnic off site.
We skip meetings in June, July and August as most all are too busy fishing anyway!
Please feel free to attend as a guest of the club and enjoy our hospitality!
LOOKING AHEAD TO NEXT FALL

SEPTEMBER PRESENTATION, SEPTEMBER 14, 2016
In September, our presenter is Pat Way of Northwest Outfitters in Coeur D’ Alene. He is very excited to speak to us about Idaho Steelhead. Pat has been with NW Outfitters since 1998. He is a treasure trove of fish knowledge. Pat guides the Spokane, Clark Fork, Upper Crab Creek, and our popular excursions on the St. Joe, the Coeur d’Alene and the Snake.
OCTOBER PRESENTATION, OCTOBER 12, 2016
Molly Semenik will be our presenter. Molly started teaching fly-casting back in the 80’s after she left the Midwest and landed in Utah. In 2000, Molly and her family moved to Livingston, Montana, where she began a 15-year guiding career. During this time, Molly started Tie the Knot Fly Fishing, became an outfitter and Master Certified Casting Instructor through the IFFF.
Another move took her further west to Birch Bay, Washington. A two-handed fly rod is now her go to method in the Pacific
Molly has a recent book out titled 25 Best Off-the-Beaten Path Montana Fly Fishing Streams by Stonefly Press. She is currently on the Casting Board of Governors and Board of Directors of the IFFF.
Molly has offered to teach a casting class on the water for up to 6 people in the mid-day, prior to the regular club meeting. The cost is $50 per person and will be well worth the price. Please contact Jodi Fitts to get on the list and if there are more than 6 members interested, we will have a drawing at the September meeting for the 6 slots.
