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 to view our past and future events or email the club on info@bffc.org.au for information.

Covid-19 and we are still in business!

Despite these interesting times, The BFFC are meeting via Zoom EVERY Wednesday night. Our club nights are still on the third Weds of the month, but we also now meet for our very popular VFT events on the Wednesdays in-between. What’s VFT? It stands for Virtual Fly Tying 🙂


If you wish to join us in zoomland, please contact us through the contact form here, or on Facebook. We’re trying to transition back to Real Life, but venue’s are proving difficult, so please be patient!

Monthly Club Meetings – 3rd Wed of each month.

We meet on the 3rd WEDNESDAY of every month at Wilston Grange AFL Club, Hickey Park, Babarra St, Stafford, 4053. Meetings commence with a BBQ at 6:30 PM.

Meting format is:
18:30 Meet and greet BBQ with drinks available at a nominal charge.
19:00 Meeting formalities, presentations, demonstrations etc.
20:00 Raffle followed by Fly tying and/or casting practice on the oval or just stay chat with your new like-minded friends.

We have a number of trained casting instructors at the club and occasional visits from master casters who can help you shoot your line 100ft or flick to your toes (what ever is your fancy).

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.
