Welcome

The Brisbane Fly Fishing Club Inc. (BFFC) came to life as a gathering of like minded fly fishers in 2009 and was incorporated in 2013. We aim to actively promote the sport of fly fishing in an ethical and sustainable manner.

We are a social club focused on enjoying the sport of fly fishing. We encourage prospective members and visiting fly fishers to join us to exchange tips, techniques and experience in fly tying, casting and fishing locations.

Anyone from the seasoned fly fishing veteran to enthusiastic beginner is welcome.

Please visit our Facebook page (below) to view our past and future events or email the club on info@bffc.org.au for information.

Club Outings

Along with our monthly club meetings, we endeavour to hold a club outing at least every two months. These outings are a great opportunity to target seasonal species and learn from more experienced club members. Details of past and current events are on our Facebook page.

We also periodically host weekend casting clinics from nationally and internationally renowned casting instructors and demonstrations from fly fishing suppliers.

We welcome all prospective members and visiting fly fishers to join us at our events, however please note that in some cases, insurance requirements may require us to restrict participation to financial club members only. Please contact a member of the club executive for confirmation.
