What is the Northwest Fly Anglers (NFA)?
The NFA is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization with 150+ members that provides members the opportunity to meet people interested in fly fishing. The club holds monthly meetings, an annual summer picnic, a year end banquet, monthly fishing outings (some being devoted to mentoring new fly fishers), conservation outings, and classes in fly casting and fly tying.
The club holds monthly meetings at 7:00 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month at the Haller Lake Community Club , except in July when we have a summer picnic and December when we hold our annual awards banquet and auction.

(There is parking in front and behind the building.)
What happens at the meetings?
All members get The Flypaper, the club’s monthly newsletter, and, of course, have access to this informative web site. Members can always drop an email.
The club is run by a Steering Committee made up of club officers and members of the various committees. The committee meets before each membership meeting. The Steering Committee must abide by an annual budget it generates and that is approved by the membership.
We prefer that you use the web site to register (and pay your dues), but you could fill out a membership form (available on line or at a meeting) and pay by check (make it out to NFA and mail it to NFA PO Box 75212, Seattle, WA 98175). To join online, go to Welcome/Join Us, page down to the middle of the page and follow the instructions.
What does it cost to go on a fishing adventure?
Our week-end (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) outings usually charge $25.00. This pays for your food for Saturday breakfast, Saturday lunch and dinner as well as Sunday breakfast and lunch. Although you are expected to help out with the cooking and clean-up, outings have a "host" who plans the menu, buys the food and brings the gear for cooking the meals. (The “host” does not have to pay the $25.00 for the outing). For 25.00 you get 5 meals! You supply your own transportation and lodging, but we usually hold the outings at an approved campground with lodging facilities close by. See this (add link) for more details.
How do I renew my membership?
You will receive a renewal notice before your membership is up for renewal. At that time you also have the option of changing your membership level. In either case, a invoice will be generated which you can pay online or mail in a check.
