Welcome to the Brisbane Fly Fishing Club

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 are a social club focussed on enjoying the sport of fly fishing, encouraging new participants and exchanging information on fly tying, casting and fishing locations. We aim to actively promote the sport of fly fishing in an ethical and sustainable manner. Anyone from the seasoned fly fishing veteran to enthusiastic beginner is more than welcome to join.
