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.

California By The Month
with Ken Hanley

Speaker 2018.05.HanleyThere’s really no reason to hang up your tackle. California has a “peak experience” every month of the year! Ken will share how the Great Golden State is “all access” when it comes to fly fishing, from freshwater and saltwater to urban, rural, or wilderness environs. During his presentation, Ken will explores the amazing variety of species and habitat that can be celebrated throughout the year. 

Ken’s been a fly fishing ambassador since the early 70’s. As a guide and instructor, he’s worked with thousands of students in the field. He’s the author of seven fly fishing books and writes and photographs for both international and regional publications in the outdoor industry. His outreach to audiences includes videos celebrating both saltwater & freshwater adventures. Extensive field experience has taken him from the highest peaks in Tibet and the Himalaya to the remote wilderness regions of Asia, New Zealand, Mexico, Europe, and North America. Ken is on Pro Staff with SAGE, Simms, RIO, Daiichi, Renzetti, Dr. Slick, Hatch, and Patagonia. .
