Long Island Flyrodders

Who

We

Are :

The Long Island Flyrodders (LIFR) is a club dedicated to
the sport of fly fishing.  LIFR was born in 1981 and
organized as a structured club in 1985 by a handful of
dedicated fly fishermen from Long Island and Queens.  
The Flyrodder, the official monthly newsletter of the club
was also launched in 1985 (Click here for current and
previous issues)
Today, the club consists of more than 200 members and
is the leading fly fishing club in the East.  Membership is
open to anyone regardless of sex, age, race, religion,
handicap, place of residence, level of expertise or social
status.

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.
