Plan to Attend


2020 Edison Flyfishing Show

We have begun collecting flies and/or monetary donations to fill our fly display at the January 2020 Edison Flyfishing Show.

Here's how you can help. Donate 12 identical freshwater flies, 10 identical saltwater flies, OR $10 in cash. 

In appreciation, you will be entered in a special raffle with one chance given for each donation.

It takes a lot of flies to make the display enticing enough for the public to buy raffle tickets. 

Peter Brower will be collecting the flies/cash at monthly meetings until January.  Please be generous.

LIFR 35 Years in the Making


2017 marked the 35th anniversary of the founding of the Long Island Flyrodders.  

We have uncovered some early photos giving us a glimpse at some of the LIFR  founding fathers long before the advent of the internet and Facebook.

Join us for a journey back in time.
