Hosted by the New Orleans Fly Fishers Club, this biennial event (every odd year) is a celebration of fly fishing, featuring all aspects of our sport. Whether you’re wanting to get into fly fishing, or a seasoned veteran, there’s a program or activity certainly to be of interest.

Activities will include fly casting seminars and demonstrations, fly tying instruction and demos, seminars and destination seminars, Sports Writers Roundtable, Iron Fly Tyer competition, auctions and raffles of top end products and flies, artists and vendors, and Kids Fly Fishing Casting and programs. Proceeds go to benefit the club’s educational and philantrophic initiatives.

NOFFC is the second oldest club in Louisiana, having formed in 1984 by Ted Cabali and Tom Jindra. For nearly four decades, the club has been a major contributor to the growth of saltwater fly fishing and fly tying in Louisiana, with several members well recognized in the regional and national fly tying community.

In preparation for the biennial expo, NOFFC has unveiled a new website. The domain remains the same, but there’s new content. In addition to the latest club news and a more detailed “Calendar of Events”, the site will also include articles of interest to all fly anglers. Check it out at

January 18th Flies & Flights

The first Flies and Flights night for 2023 is scheduled for Wednesday, January 18th, at Rally Cap Brewing beginning at 7:00pm.  Location is 11212 Pennywood Ave in Baton Rouge.  Click on the image on left for a larger view with more detail.

F&F is not affliated with the Red Stick club, but all members are invited.  This is an independent collective of tiers just looking to tie and enjoy a social gathering with some fine brews.  Anyone can come and join in. As always, feel free to bring some materials to tie your favorite pattern.  Or, join in on tying our featured pattern of the month.  While it is still TBD for January, Chris will have all the materials on hand plus tools and a few extra vises for those looking to learn.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

For our first meeting of the new year, Chris Williams and Ben Roussel will give tips on photographing fish and submitting photos for the Jambalaya Challenge. We are aware that Monday is the National Championship football game, but this should be a short meeting.
