Most members join a fly fishing club to learn the best ways to explore and fish local waters, meet other fly fishers with whom to share our passion, learn more about fly fishing, and to fish other destinations that we have only read or dreamed about. The Fredericksburg Fly Fishers Club is dedicated to providing you all of these opportunities.
If you or your family are just taking up the sport of fly fishing, or have been avid fly fishers for a number of years, the Fredericksburg Fly Fishers Club will work to help develop your knowledge and skills, and will provide a number of fishing experiences that you can share locally with other fly fishers, and throughout the State of Texas.
Join our club and learn where and when to fish our local waters. As a member you can also join our Trout Lease Program which provides great fishing just minutes away.
In short, fly fishing can be the key that opens the door for a lifetime of outdoor family and friends memories.
In late 2000 Fredericksburg local residents Martin Pursch and Mark Cole decided to hold a meeting to see if there was any interest in forming a fly fishing club. Interested fishermen began meeting at Martin Pursch’s Country Fly Fisher Shop in February of 2001. where approximately 10 people attended.
Martin and Mark laid out their plan for the club and it was then decided the club would be called “The Heart of the Hills Fly Fishers”. Martin and Mark acted as co-leaders for the group for the first year, holding their monthly meetings at the Country Fly Fisher Shop.
In January 2002 The Heart of the Hills Fly Fishers became officially organized and elected its first officers. In 2005 the club elected to change the name of the club to “The Fredericksburg Fly Fishers”.
Since it’s inception, the club has actively worked to teach fly fishing to others in the community and the Texas Hill Country.
At the beginning of January 2021, Hill Country Fly Fishers of Kerrville voted to cease operations and decided to join forces with the Fredericksburg Fly Fishers raising club membership to over 115 members.
