Camaraderie and friendship around the sport of fly fishing are what set CWF apart. Members describe the choice to join CWF as “life changing” for life-long friendships, the ability to travel and to fish safely together, the opportunities to serve our community and for the memories we create. CWF provides services and benefits to help members serve, stay connected, plan trips, make new fishy friends and to meet up with each other at events and fishing locations all year long.
Private Chat Group
When CWF membership applications are submitted online, new members are added to our private Google chat group. The chat group is used to inform members of trip updates, plan impromptu fishing trips, advise when event sign-ups are open, sell your old boots and gear, or just chat!
Visit our Newsletter Archives going back to 1997! You will be amazed at how things have changed and also how they’ve stayed the same. Monthly newsletters keep members up-to-date on upcoming trips and events, new member announcements and recent trip reports. Never miss an opportunity to connect!
Search the Member Roster for contact information. Meet others who live near you or near your next fishing destination.
Community and Service
CWF connects with conservation organizations such as Trout Unlimited, Blue River Watershed Group, and many local fly shops for willow planting, river shocking for fish counts, and river clean-ups. We serve youth educational groups such as TU Stream Girls . We get involved in classroom fly tying, on-river classes and help with women’s educational clinics sponsored by Backcountry Hunters and Anglers. We collaborate with Casting For Recovery and Project Healing Waters , offering free CWF memberships for women in these groups attending clinics (Contact us for how to join CWF for free for the same year of the clinic attended). We proudly participate in Tie-A-Thon events, an organization that donates flies to 501(c)(3)’s across the country.
