Club Information

The Sea Island Fly Fishers (SIFF)

What are we? A group of about 70 men and women who share a common interest in fly fishing. This group meets on the second Wednesday from September through June each year.

What do the meetings involve? The meetings start at 6:00 p.m. with a social hour followed by a speaker or film. 

What is the members fishing background? Some are long time salt water fly fisherman. Some come to the area with fresh water experience and are interested in learning about salt water fly fishing. Others have never done any fly fishing but are interested in learning more about the sport.

 Do I have to have a boat to participate? No. About half the group are boat owners and half are not. In fact many of those who own boats are always looking for a crew on their fishing excursions.

What other projects is the club involved with? At the moment the club is involved in the Low Country Institute‚Äôs Osprey Monitoring Project. A number of the members are also active participants in the redfish tagging program and involved in oyster restoration project.
