Clubs put you in touch with a lot of like-minded people.

Looking for people that share your interest in saltwater fly fishing? A fishing club might be the answer. Pacific #1 members (L-R) Mike Forrest, Rocky Tussey and Steve Petit teamed up in one of our tournaments to land this nice fly-rod yellowfin.

Listed below are some fly fishing clubs in Southern California, located in counties along the coast. We left off clubs that are in the inland areas, such as San Bernardino and Imperial counties, but almost every club has members who fly fish in salt water.
