Truckee River Flyfishers was founded in 1979 by Jim Jackson, original owner of the Reno Fly Shop, Dave Morrison and Terry Barron. The new fly shop became a gathering place for local fly fishermen; Jim Jackson promoted the club and it grew relatively quickly.
Their vision was to provide an opportunity for men and women interested in fly fishing to share information with others, learn from others, experience fly fishing at various fisheries, and protect fisheries for future generations.
The club promotes the preservation and restoration of streams, rivers and lakes, particularly those within Nevada and California. We support youth programs that provide both education and enjoyment to young people interested in fishing. All club activities endeavor to promote learning the art of fly fishing and developing an appreciation for healthy fisheries.
