Welcome to the SJRVFF


The Major emphasis of the St. Joseph River Valley Fly Fishers club will be directed toward cultivation and advancement of the art and science of fly fishing, conservation and restoration of rivers and lakes, and public education programs that will broaden the understanding of the delicate balance that shapes our fresh water environment.

Our Beginning
Through monthly meetings started in 1978 by a handful of local fishermen, the St. Joseph River Valley Fly Fishers club has become a reality. Motivated by interest and the need to focus their energies in order to cultivate and promote the science of fly fishing in our area, the club has realized a steady increase in its membership by both beginning and experienced fly fishers. Growth of the club can be attributed to the enjoyment fishermen realize from sharing the sport and science of fly fishing.

Our Goal
Major emphasis of the club will be directed toward cultivation and advancement of the art and science of fly fishing, conservation and restoration of rivers and lakes, and public education programs that will broaden the understanding of the delicate balance that shapes our fresh water environment

SJRVFF General Meetings are the third Wednesday of every month between September and April at the clubhouse of Judy Creek Golf Course.

We lost a local advocate and passionate fly fisher this week. Joe Mitchell, one of the founding members of SJRVFF passed away this week. Joe’s passion was anything fly fishing, any fish, anywhere and especially cold water streams. Pictured here, he spent a long time talking with Kevin, an active/wounded military personnel brought out to our Tie-a-thon by Project Healing Waters from Walter Reed Hospital for support of our Tie-a-thon back in 2011. Joe’s enthusiasm for conservation and spreading the love of fly fishing went unmatched. Joe will be greatly missed by fish and fly fishers alike….(more)
