Welcome to the Diablo Valley Fly Fishermen club website. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to the support and conservation of native fish and their environment. The members of DVFF promote the awareness, art and skills of fly fishing, fly tying, rod building, catch and release practices, and related activities.

The DVFF organization exists to serve its members through club activities and resources including a novice seminar, skills seminars, fishing outings, guest speakers at regular meetings, an online forum, a DVD lending library, Facebook page, and fund raising activities, such as our 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 a local Project Healing Waters program.

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