Who We Are

Sespe Fly Fishers

Introduction

The Sespe Fly Fishers had its start in 1971. The object was to form a group of dedicated fly fishers and fly tyers with a common interest in conservation, education, and fellowship. While the club emphasizes fly fishing for trout, we also occasionally focus our attention on other saltwater and freshwater species with speakers and club outings. We are part of a cooperative of fly fishing groups that allows us to bring Speakers to our meetings from all over the world. In the recent past, we have enjoyed programs from Charles Jardine, Gary Borger, Skip Morris, Dave Hughes, Davy Wotton, and many others.
  

Affiliation

In addition to being a member organization of the Federation of Fly Fishers (FFF) and the Southwest Council of the FFF, we are also supporters of California Trout, Trout Unlimited.
 

Public Service

We have performed services for the California Department of Fish and Game, including electroshocking, survey box installations, and stream cleanup. We have introduced the art of fly fishing to schools through the Trout in the Classroom program and we sponsor public fly casting clinics. We also demonstrate fly tying techniques at fishing and boat shows.
 

Commitment to Conservation

The quality of our environment and fish habitat is threatened everywhere. The Sespe Fly Fishers support anti-pollution controls, public access to recreational waters, catch and release fishing techniques, reduced or zero limits, and stream and lake improvements.
