Mending the Line

In 1944, 20-year-old Frank Moore landed on the beaches of Normandy. Crossing through the occupied French countryside, the young soldier daydreamed about coming back in peacetime to fish the bucolic streams. After the war, he returned to the States, married, had a family and built a life centered around fly fishing. But he never made it back to those streams in France. Until 2014 ... Now 90 years old, but with the energy of a man 20 years younger, Moore completes the dream with his wife and son by his side. This extraordinary story of a dream deferred, and ultimately fulfilled, proves that the scars of the past can be healed. Click here to read the article.

Our Mission

  • To promote, improve and enjoy all phases of fly fishing.
  • To maintain a high standard of true sportsmanship and promote social relations among its' members.
  • We, individually, endeavor to take at least one youth (beginner/no age restriction) fly fishing annually; instruct them, to the best of our ability, in the art and responsibilities that are soon to be wholly theirs.
  • To fraternize and cooperate with organizations whose aims and purposes preserve our waters and to promote the sport.
  • To provide instruction and information in fly casting, flytying, rod building and entomology. These classes and/or clinics will be open to the public with no fee
