​Welcome to Firelands Flyfishers!


Firelands Flyfishers was established in 1994 founded by William Grake (Bill) who was president of the club until 2016. Bill decided it was time to let someone else takeover at the helm. Bill continues to be a 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. 

Monthly Membership Club Meetings are held at Sandy Ridge Lorain Metroparks, 6915 Otton Rd, North Ridgeville, OH on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month at 5 pm. 


Monthly Fly Tying starts 1-hour before the Monthy Membership 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.


Bimonthly Project Healing Healing Waters Fly Fishing Meetings (PHWFF) classes are the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month from 2 pm - 3:30 pm at Lorain County Community College (LCCC), 1005 Abbe Rd Elyria, OH 44035.


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

Non-Members are always welcome to join us at our monthly membership 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.

 President: Steve Smith
