AFF Calendar of Events

Come join at one of our events!  We'd love to have you!

AFF has several recurring events where you can find our members:

Sipping & Tying: Migrate over the first Monday of the month to Flyway Brewing in North Little Rock, for our social fly tying nights which start at 6 pm. Bring your fly tying vise, tying materials and hooks, order some food and a beverage and we will tie flies and trade fishing lies. We have a featured tyer who will have materials on hand to guide you through a new pattern each month. If you don't tie (yet) & just want to see how it's done, we'd love to see you. No experience necessary. Members & visitors welcome--Flyway is family friendly. 

Project Healing Waters (PHW) Little Rock. AFF sponsors two PHW Programs. Our PHW Little Rock program meets at 6 pm on the second Monday of the month at Bass Pro Shops in Little Rock. PHW is a national program dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outings. Contact us for more info on this program as a participant or volunteer. 

Monthly Meetings. Our regular club meeting is the third Monday of the month at the Whole Hog Cafe, 2516 Cantrell Road, Little Rock, at 6 pm. Besides the opportunity to meet and socialize with AFF members, monthly meetings typically feature a presentation from knowledgeable experts on fly fishing, fly tying, fisheries management, casting, or other topic of interest to fly fishers. Check out upcoming programs below. Members & visitors welcome. Family friendly.  

Board Meetings. AFF's Board of Directors meets at 6 pm on the fourth Monday of the month at Corky's BBQ, 12005 Westhaven Dr, Little Rock. Members welcome.
