Sea Island Fly Fishers was founded in 1996 and is celebrating its 25th Anniversary. Members gather together to have fun and make new friends, tell fish stories and show-off fish pictures while eating BBQ and having a beer during club meetings. All are welcomed.
Our mission is help fly fishing anglers to learn the skills needed to enjoy this lifetime sport—Fly casting lessons, Where to fish, How to safely wade the flats during a flood tide, Fly tying, Rod Building, Saltwater knots and more.
Practicing habitat protection and environmental sustainability through conservation programs. Our newest conservation effort is focused on our new 20/20 Release Program—catch and release all trout and flounder over 20-inches.
Every dedicated fly tier has a story. John Holbrook’s story is the best I’ve every heard, and by the way, if redfish are your passion, his insight into patterns and fishing for these bruisers is pretty damn impressive, too.
EVENTS LEADING TO TEN YEARS OF GREAT FISHING WITH “Dr. Dick”
To understand how I ended up spending so many enjoyable hours in a flats boat with Dick Werenberg, I came to understand his compassion for the wellbeing of his fellow man and realize his amazing depth of knowledge in so many areas. I need to start with an event which occurred before his arrival. The purchase of my first flats boat.

I’ve been thinking about this past February. It seems like it was colder and wetter than usual, but what really surprised me was how much wind we had. Now I’m wondering if that portends a more unsettled spring. Maybe I’m more apprehensive than usual because just the regular unsettled weather of March can present enough fly fishing challenges for me.
What is a mentor program? A mentor program is a voluntary merging of experience with inexperience. New anglers could apply for assistance in any area of fly fishing needed. Experienced club members could agree to serve as mentors and share the skills and knowledge they possess.
