Dear Fly Fisher,

I want to wish you and your family a happy and prosperous holiday season and hope that you have had a great year of fly fishing.

We had a busy 2017 — our annual shad outing and the Legends of Fly Fishing events are more popular than ever and we traveled to the Jacksonville area to fish the Flood Tide. We teamed up with the Coastal Conservation Association and the University of Central Florida to improve habitat in our estuaries. In 2018, the BFA will be providing even more opportunities to enjoy fly fishing and become a better fly angler.

The Backcountry Fly Fishing Association is your place to meet with fellow fly anglers and learn about new places, techniques, and equipment to enhance your fly fishing experiences.

We are inviting you to renew your membership to the Backcountry Fly Fishing Association and continue to be an active member of Central Florida’s best fly fishing club. We’re already planning 2018’s fly fishing sessions — fly fishing events, casting clinics, fly tying, as well as habitat improvement volunteer projects with the Coastal Conservation Association and the University of Central Florida. We look forward to seeing you in the coming year.

Annual dues are $30. For your convenience, you can pay for dues two ways:

Fly fishing the flood tide in Jacksonville, FL for redfish from kayaks...awesome!


You can use same the same materials or less materials and get as creative as you want with this fly. We like how 239 Flies doubles foam and ties in the foam strip. Check out other "how to tie gurlgler fly" videos to get iedas on variety with this effective fly.
