|Badger Fly Fishers
Based in Madison, Wisconsin, the Badger Fly Fishers is a non-profit organization that began in the late 1980's as a chapter of the larger Federation of Fly Fishers (FFF). The Badgers are no longer a 100% FFF membership club. Our beliefs and goals, however, strongly remain the same, but one may join just the Badgers for a modest $15.00 annual fee. Our large (free) video library is worth that alone !
We meet on the fourth Monday, unless otherwise designated, at the Maple Tree Restaurant in McFarland. Meetings start at 7:00 P.M. and you are welcome to join us earlier for dinner. A variety of speakers and programs are presented throughout the year, covering fly fishing and conservation-related topics. We have two major fund raisers per year. First, the event we are most noted for--The Spring Opener. This event presents programs and demonstrations by the world's finest fly fishing authorities--Gary Borger, Dave Whitlock, Lefty Kreh, Dave Hughes, Jim Teeney, Mike Lawson,Jack Dennis and Ian Colin James - just to name a few. We often feature Madison area and regional experts on fly fishing as well.
Over the years, we have had classes for beginning through advanced fly tying and casting. Twenty or more select fly tiers demonstrate throughout the day, sharing their skills with the attendees. Numerous fly fishing-related vendors fill out the show with merchandise for sale. Through admission fees, raffles, and an auction, the event raises money to fund conservation projects. An evening banquet ends the day where we present the annual Joan and Lee Wulff Conservation Award.
|Unless otherwise noted, meetings are held in McFarland, Wi at the Maple Tree Inn at 7:00pm. Come early and join others for dinner.|
