Welcome To Antietam Fly Anglers Fly Fishing Site

The Antietam Fly Anglers was organized in 1975 in Hagerstown, Maryland as an affiliated club of the Federation of Fly Fishers (FFF) and is now a Charter Club of the FFF. To be an active member of the Antietam Fly Anglers one must be a member of the FFF.

The purpose of the Antietam Fly Anglers is to promote and encourage every aspect of the sport of fly fishing and fly tying and the conservation of fishing resources in the Tri-State area. The club actively functions at both the local club level and the regional area and draws membership from Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The Art of Fly Fishing, Fly Tying, Rod Building and support for instructional programs for Youth and Adult fly fishing activities are actively supported by the Antietam Fly Anglers.

A newsletter is sent to each member prior to the monthly meeting listing the program for that month and any other activities involving the club or the Federation.

A conservation message from John Brognard
BREAKING NEWS: EPA releases final Bristol Bay watershed assessment.

"Anchorage, AK – Yesterday’s release by the Environmental Protection Agency of the final Bristol Bay Watershed Assessment brought praise from a vast coalition of 1,048 sporting groups and businesses opposed to mining operations in the southwest Alaska region. The groups sent a letter to the EPA today calling on the agency to use its authority under the Clean Water Act to finally protect this international fishing and hunting mecca and ensure it isn’t turned into a waste storage site for proposed massive mining operations."
