Club History

Club Motto

Our Mission is to provide a family friendly organization for promoting the sport of fly fishing through education, application and conservation.


From the Beginning

The Spokane Fly Fishers Club was founded in 1977 through the efforts of Larry Patterson, Lee Gomes, Don & Mary De Luca and Joe King. The club started with nearly 75 members in 1977, but has steadily grown to nearly 300 today.  

These dedicated anglers sought to develop a family friendly club to promote the sport and, art of fly fishing through education, application, and conservation.

The club’s annual fly fishing school and other classes teach the techniques and traditions of fly fishing as well as encouraging active participation in conserving quality fishing and waters. 

The club meets monthly to discuss all aspects of the sport, and to encourage novice and advanced anglers alike to get involved any way they can.

Annual activities include: Monthly meetings with top level speakers, Club picnic, Holiday Party, Fly Auction, Conservation Raffle, and many outings and other events at some of the finest fishing spots in the Northwest.

The Spokane Fly Fishers Club is an affiliated club of Fly Fishers International.
