The Delaware Valley Women’s Fly Fishing Association was formed in January 1996 by a group of women fly fishers in the Philadelphia area who wanted to create a network of women to fish with. We now have approximately 60 members, most from the Delaware Valley and Mid-Atlantic states.
Regardless of one’s ability level, the club offers learning opportunities both on and off the stream. The only requirement to join is an interest in fly fishing.
Our programs cover a wide range of topics, from fly fishing techniques to stream tactics to fly tying. In addition to casting clinics, entomology seminars and outings, several purely social gatherings are held throughout the year so that our members can get to know one another.
Trips and outings are a major focus of the DVWFFA’s activities. From bluegills to bluefish, no type of fishing goes uncovered by our members. The club plans a variety of fishing trips and outings; day, overnight and multiple-night trips are scheduled throughout the year.
Mentoring is always available for club members.
We strive to schedule at least one fly fishing outing per month that is open to all anglers.
Our weekly e-newsletter provides up-to-date information on upcoming events, club information, member submitted photos and stories and fly fishing articles of interest.
