The Spokane Fly Fishers meet on the second Wednesday, September – April, of every month at 7 pm.
at: St. Francis School, 1104 W. Heroy
May is our Awards Picnic, held off site.
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!

In 2003 Kelly received the living legend award from the IFFF, and was awarded the Charles E Brooks memorial life award in 2007. He has over fifty nationally recognized fly patterns that are sold worldwide, and is currently a signature tier for Rainy’s Flies.
