The annual banquet is scheduled on Saturday October 19.

Mark your calendars, and donate your extra fly fishing stuff.

Stay tuned for further announcements.


Tuesday June 4th Woods Canyon Lake North East of Payson

Take a break from the valley heat. This is an easy midweek day trip.

Due to warm water at Payson's Green Valley Lakes, we are moving to Woods Canyon Lake.

The date remains the same but the drive is about a half hour longer.

Tom Herman, president of the Payson Flycasters, reports that the fishing in the Green Valley Lakes is very poor and that the fishing in Woods Canyon is good.

Hope to see you there.

Education Opportunities

Fly casting and fly tying classes are provided to all, whether beginning or experienced. FFI certified instructors and experienced coaches are available to work with your casting or fly tying. AFC can provide all equipment and materials. Please bring a 5 or 6 weight 9 foot fly rod with floating line and a 7 1/2 foot tapered leader to the casting class if you have one. For your safety bring a hat, sunglasses and water.

Casting classes are usually held at Roadrunner Park, Northeast corner. Check the UPCOMMING EVENTS sidebar to the right for start times and any changes.

Fly-tying classes are held at the Arizona American Italian Club in the game room behind the bar. Classes start at 7 PM.

Additional classes are offered on knots, rigging, entomology, still water, moving water, how to play the fish, equipment, etc. Everything that you need to improve your fishing enjoyment.

Monthly Meetings


Arizona Flycasters Club holds monthly meetings the second Tuesday of the month. The meetings are held at the American-Italian Club located at 7509 N 12th St, Phoenix, AZ. We start at 6:00 PM with a social hour and raffle offerings. This is followed by a club update and then a speaker. Meetings usually end at 8:30 or 9:00.

About once a quarter AFC will hold a new member orientation which starts at 6:00 and coincides with the monthly meeting. Occasionally we will just have a Happy Hour at a different location. These events are announced in advance in the Newsletter and on our web site.
