​Welcome to Firelands Flyfishers!

Firelands Flyfishers is a fishing club that was established in 1994 in Avon, Ohio founded by William Grake (Bill) who was its Firelands Flyfishers President. Bill decided in 2016, it was time to let someone else takeover at the helm. Taking over Firelands helm was and still is, President Steve Smith. Bill continues to be an club member, advisor and mentor. 

​Firelands Fly Fishers is a Fly Fishing International (FFI) fishing club which is a group of men and women fly fishers, fly tiers, rod builders and educators. Our goals are to educate members, the public and kids on all aspects of fly fishing. 

Meetings are held at Sandy Ridge Lorain Metroparks, 6915 Otton Rd, North Ridgeville, OH on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 5 pm. 


Monthly Fly Tying starts 1-hour before the Monthy Club Meeting at Sandy Ridge beginning at 4 pm. Members have the opportunity to tie flies. Expert fly tiers are available and are always willing to instruct you no matter what your skill level is and Non Members are always welcome.

Note: Schedule changes are posted on our Facebook page (see link above).  

If you’re not a Club member, you are always welcome to join us at our meetings and fly tying to see if Firelands Flyfishers is a club for you and get answers to your questions. If you are interested in joining our club and would like more information, complete our "Contact Us" form (see link above). Be sure to include your phone number and email address. Voice communications are always best, instead of back and forth emails, tell us your preference. Someone will be contacting you as soon as they are off the water.
