Welcome to the Diablo Valley Fly Fishermen club website. We are a group of men and women who share a common interest in the sport of fly fishing. The members of the DVFF help each other develop their skills and knowledge in the pursuit of this fascinating sport.

The DVFF serves its members through club activities and resources including a novice seminar, a Youth Fly Fishing program, skills seminars, fishing outings, guest speakers at regular meetings, an online forum, a DVD lending library, Facebook page, and an annual auction.

The club sponsors a scholarship for research in Fisheries Biology and/or Riparian or Limnetic Ecology by a student of the UC Davis College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, Center of Aquatic Biology and Aquaculture. The DVFF also supports a large Trout In the Classroom program and sponsors the local Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing-Martinez, CA program.

Anyone interested in fly fishing is eligible and welcome to become a member of the DVFF.

Next Monthly Club Meeting & Program

Tuesday, June 21, 2016
The Gardens at Heather Farms | Rotary Room
1540 Marchbanks Drive, Walnut Creek
Meeting at 7 p.m.

Czech Nymphing with Steve Korbay

Steve KorbaySteve Korbay will cover the history of Czech nymphing, including proper leader set up, rod and fly selection, reading the water and more. His slide show and videos will show the actual technique being used on the Truckee River.

 

Steve grew up in Northern California fishing the streams and lakes of the Sierras and quickly made the switch to the fly rod. His passion for the sport led him to the creative art of fly tying and soon after he was searching out new and unique products for tying his flies. Unable to obtain some of these items, Steve started a company called Fly Tying Specialties, an on-line resource for hard to find items from around the world.

 

Fishing the fast rivers in the mountains and learning about Czech Nymphing, it was only a matter of time that he began to specialize in this technique and enjoys teaching others just how effective it can be.
