WELCOME TO MTFF

MTFF is a fly fishing club in Marin County, CA.  Since 2004, we have been bringing together fly anglers to share knowledge, experience, and good times. We host monthly meetings, fishing trips, casting clinics, and social dinners and events.  Our members span all skill levels from beginner to veteran.  We offer membership to anyone interested in fly fishing regardless of the skill level.  Prospective members are welcome to attend our monthly meetings,  meet current members, and learn more about us.  If you would like more information please email info@mttamflyfishers.org.

Upcoming events

ON SUMMER VACATION

The club is on hiatus in July and August to allow maximum time to GO FISHING!

NorCal stream and lakes got plenty of water this winter and spring, so great conditions will persist through the summer and early fall.  We encourage everyone to get outdoors and find your fish.

Well see you again in September, when we will resume monthly programs and club fishing activities.


FISH FOR KIDS--AN INTRODUCTORY EVENT!

Our combined Golden Gate Chapter of TU (formerly the North Bay Chapter) and the Mt Tamalpais FF would like to host a follow-up event on Sunday, July 15 at the Marin Cheese Factory on the Petalume/Pt Reyes Rd.  If you're coming from the south, the easiest way to get there is to take the San Marin Drive off ramp from Hwy 101 at the Northern end of Novato; go west and just past San Marin HS, turn right on Novato Blvd.  Proceed out of town to the northwest for about 12 miles, until Novato Blvd ends at the Petaluma/Pt Reyes Rd.  Turn left and go about 1/2 mile passing a County Fire station on your right and arriving at the Marin Cheese Factory also on your right.  The Pond is right in front of this well known producer of some of the world's best Brie, Camembert, and Schloss cheeses.  They also make sandwiches, soups, chili, etc. with a restroom out by the pond.  The pond is surrounded by grass and represents an ideal location in which to practice knot tying, rigging, and casting.  If you'd like to put the word out, include my contact # for registration purposes so we'll know how much tackle we'll need, how many 'coaches', etc.

That's  larry.lack17@att.net  or 415-307-5363

Thanks.  We'll plan on starting at 1000 and be finished by about 1200.  The pond has lots of small Bluegill and some small to medium Bass.

Pebble Mine Would Put America Last

In a shocking about-face, the EPA has agreed to drop proposed restrictions that would have banned construction of the Pebble Mine in Alaska.  This move paves the way for Northern Dynasty Minerals, - the Canadian company behind the mine and which has a terrible record of devastating spills and toxic releases – to seek permits for building the massive copper and gold mine in the pristine headwaters of Bristol Bay, where it would imperil the world’s largest run of Sockeye Salmon.    The EPA Administrator, Scott Pruitt, made this decision after a half-hour meeting with the mining company CEO, and shocked all the remaining scientists in the EPA who have spent years researching this proposal and have unanimously concluded it would be a disaster and would ‘irreversibly’ destroy one of the most pristine and productive locations on the planet.

Just weeks after the EPA reversal, fishermen in Bristol Bay were reporting near-record levels for this year’s Salmon run, a testament to the strength of the $1.5 billion sustainable fishery that supports 14,000 local jobs and is central to the culture of Native peoples in SW Alaska.  The colossal open pit Pebble Mine, which would be as deep as the Grand Canyon and generate 10 billion tons of toxic mining waste, was stopped in 2014 when the EPA study (twice peer reviewed) said the mine posed catastrophic risks to the Bristol Bay watershed.  One of the main problems lies in the fact that the huge earth dam which will hold most of the toxic tailings lies almost on top of an active Earthquake fault.   “In keeping with the Trump Administration’s pro-polluter, pro-extraction agenda, the EPA has utterly abandoned sound science and the people of Bristol Bay”, said Taryn Heimer, a scientist with NRDC’s Land and Wildlife program, which organization partnered with hundreds of grassroots organizations to convince the government to stop it in 2014.   More than 80% of local residents oppose the Pebble Mine.   To push the message, “No Pebble Mine.  Not now.  Not ever.”  go to <nrdc.org/stoppebble

The fish thank you.
