Jim McCombs fishing Hot Creek, Sept. 2008

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.

Fly Fishing for Alternative Species of the Tahoe Region with Dan LeCount

 

Dan LeCount May 2017Dan LeCount – a fly fishing guide in the north Tahoe region - will offer his insights into fly fishing for smallmouth bass, mackinaw and carp in the Truckee area. He will go over where and when to find these, the flies to use, and the tactics that work best. Dan has been targeting these fish for decades with a fly and will share many of his hard earned secrets.

Based out of Truckee, Dan has been fly fishing for over 25 years, and has worked in the industry for almost 20 years. He works primarily as a guide but also builds custom fly rods and is a contract fly designer for Umpqua Feather Merchants. In his spare time, he works on the board of Trout Unlimited Chapter #103, the “Tahoe Trout Bums.” He loves sight fishing for trout and bass, but will chase anything that will eat his flies.

Guests Welcome!
