Red Stick Fly Fishers was founded in 1988 and currently lists over 100 members. Our mission is to promote fly fishing, conservation and outdoor ethics in the capitol region of Louisiana. Interests of our members range from mountain stream fishing to inshore saltwater to offshore big game to local waters for bass and bluegill. A summary of club information, including membership form, can be found in our club leaflet available in PDF format.
The 2nd Monday of each month, we hold our general meeting at 7:00pm. Programs include guest speakers on a wide variety of topics, educational videos, and club experts. Prior to our meetings we offer casting outside. The meetings are open to the public.

We cover a wide variety of flies for species ranging from mountain trout to offshore big game. Members get hands-on opportunities in tying flies as demonstrated by the instructor. Tying tools, materials, and personal assistance are available. The tying sessions are open to the public, and beginners are welcomed and encouraged!
We have frequently scheduled fishing trips, and clinics for casting, rod building, and introductory fly fishing, as well as club social events. We also colloborate with BREC (East Baton Rouge Recreation), LA Wildlife and Fisheries, and Boy Scouts. RSFF also boasts one of the largest contingent of "puddlers" (canoe and kayak anglers). For details on our many club activities, check out our Calendar, Events, Education pages, as well as our current newsletter.
Fly fishing is built on tradition. For that reason, it's imperative that we pass the sport on. So our $25 dues apply both to individuals and family members. In addition, club membership is FREE to any and all full-time students and active military. Click here to download the membership form in PDF format.
