Dedicated to fly fishing and the education,
and sustainability of the sport

The Falmouth Flats Fly Fishers is a diverse group of anglers with one thing in common: The Fly Rod.  Located in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, we are a nonprofit charter club of Fly Fishers International (FFI) dedicated to the promotion of fly fishing through education, restoration, and conservation efforts.

Our club was spawned as a result of the seasonal shad and striped bass runs on the easily-waded Rappahannock River flats below the Falmouth Bridge in Fredericksburg, Virginia. 


Over the course of several years, as an increasing number of fly fishers came into contact with one another at the flats, information was shared, friendships made, and - on January 19th of  1999 – the Falmouth Flats Fly Fishers was launched at an organizational meeting which drew 25 people by word-of-mouth advertising.  Our current membership now exceeds 100.


Today, our club’s activities, projects, and monthly meetings reflect the varied interests of our anglers.  We welcome individuals of all experience levels and fly fishing focus.  Whether you prefer chasing cold-water trout, warm-water bass,

or salt water monsters, you’ll find like-minded anglers in this club.  Our meetings, currently conducted the third Tuesday of every month, are attended by experienced fly anglers, beginners, and those just curious about the sport.
