Shad Run Seession.

2018 BFA Shad Fishing Session on the St Johns River

High water from hurricane Irma has flooded our annual camp site on the St Johns river. The water is finally receding but will not dry out sufficiently to permit camping on the property, so we will not be able to hold the weekend long shad outing this year at our usual location.

What we are planning is having a day of Shad Fishing on Saturday January 20, 2018. We are meeting at the CS Lee Park, 4600 East SR 46, Geneva, FL at 11:00 AM where lunch will be served. Fishing will commence after lunch on the St Johns.

Plan to meet after fishing at the Jolly Gator Fish Camp located adjacent to the park on the St Johns River for refreshments and fish tales.

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:

1. Online with PayPal
