Welcome to the Kalamalka Flyfishers Society (KFF).

As avid fly fishers, we are concerned and active in the conservation, protection, and restoration of fish habitat in the Vernon and surrounding areas.

Education in all areas of fly fishing is a major part of what we do. Whether it is learning to cast using a fly rod, tie your own flies, build your own fly rod or improve your skills, we can help with classes or self-help opportunities.

Getting out and going fishing is what it is all about. Especially getting children started in fishing and maybe one day into fly fishing is our goal. You are never too young or old to start.

Drop in and see what we are all about.

We meet every Monday 7 pm – 9 pm (except holidays) from September until the end of June. There might not be anyone there in July and August, we’ve all gone fishing for the summer. The first Monday of the month is the business meeting, not very exciting  but you are invited to see for yourself. check the events calendar to see what’s happening.
