Welcome to the Southwest Missouri Fly Fishers


The Southwest Missouri Fly Fishers is a local affiliate of Federation of Flyfishers (FFF), based in Livingston, Montana. The FFF is a federation of individuals and clubs throughout the United States and the world. Our motto is "conserving, restoring, educating through flyfishing". We support all species of fish in all waters.
Our organization provides an opportunity to meet fellow flyfishers (some of the best people in the world), to teach others about our sport, to learn from others about our sport, and most importantly to channel our efforts into conservation. Our strongest conservation focus is on clean water and fisheries habitat.


We offer individual and family memberships. Membership is open to all who want to participate and share our objectives. We welcome men, women and kids. Prospective members are welcome to attend any of our regular meetings before deciding on membership.

Monthly Meetings

The club meets on the second Thursday of the month. The meetings start at 7:00 pm, and consist of a short business meetng followed a education program.
The meetings are held at Springfield Nature Center. The nature center is located in southeast Springfield just west of US-65 off the James River Freeway. Look on the Events page of the website for the exact dates and times of the meetings, a description of the programs.
