The Fly Fishers of Virginia (FFV) was established in 1982 to promote the art of fly rod fishing; to foster good sportsmanship; and to promote conservation of the nation’s natural resources.
During the year, six dinner meetings are occasions for
informational programs pertaining to the many aspects of fly fishing and conservation activities. Programs are presented by international and local experts and celebrities in the fly fishing world, as well as knowledgeable FFV members.
Fishing trips are scheduled each year for cold water, warm water, and saltwater species.
Fly fishing dinners, seminars, and workshops are booked periodically.
Fly tying classes are offered each winter: Beginning, Intermediate, or Advanced, depending on demand. Casting clinics are also available.
The club is an affiliate of the Federation of Fly Fishers and also gives financial support to several conservation and fly fishing related organizations, including: the Atlantic Salmon Federation; American Museum of Fly Fishing; the Catskill Fly Fishing Center; The Chesapeake Bay Foundation; and the Brotherhood of the Jungle Cock.
