South Sound Fly Fishers Club is the Olympia affiliate of Fly Fishing International. For more than half of a century we have been sharing fly fishing knowledge, teaching and educating the greater south sound area. From beginners to advanced , the club has a great range of skills. SSFF continues to work on conservation activities with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and a variety of public and private conservation groups. We encourage and enjoy having visitors come to see what SSFF is all about.
Regular club meetings are normally held every Third Tuesday of the month at the North Olympia Fire station, 5046 Boston Harbor Rd. NE, Olympia, WA 98506.
Doors open with casting and fly tying at 5:30PM. Meetings begin at 7:00PM
Meetings consist of club information such as outings, classes, conservation projects and most importantly a guest speaker. A guest speaker is invited every month and they range from conservation groups, local professional guides, writers, agency or private Industry professionals.
