What We Do :
LIFR members are passionate anglers, who enjoy four
seasons of fly fishing activity.
Winter is the traditional season for fly tying and we hold
organized classes for all skill levels. The Club also
participates in several fishing shows where we network
with other anglers and outfitters.
Spring lets us finally wet a line and our Club trips and
stream cleanup activities start.
Summer is a time for camping trips and warm water
fishing for bass and panfish. Our summer meetings
feature delicious cookouts and casting practice.
Fall fishing in New York is fantastic as we have
saltwater migrations for stripers and blues, plus world
class steelhead, salmon and brown trout runs in the
Great Lakes tributaries. We finish the year with a lively
awards dinner and a visit from Santa.
