Who We Are

Our History


  Based in Everett, Washington, the Evergreen Fly Fishing Club has a long and rich history. It was founded in 1955 by a small group of avid fly fishers that included Lew Bell, Bill Beggs, Ted Knoblauch, Al Knudson, Ernie Larson, Lloyd McChesney, and Lloyd Solie. Lew was one of the early presidents of the Federation of Fly Fishers (FFF) and Al Knudson, whose Knudson spider fly pattern has become a standard in the Northwest. Early members included Bill Nelson, another founder of the FFF, credited by many with coming up with the original idea for a national alliance of fly fishers. Evergreen Fly Fishing Club maintains the founder's traditions, in emphasizing activities, education and conservation.

Our Mission


  Today the club membership includes well over 100 members. The Evergreen Fly Fishing club (EFFC) provides fly fishing educational programs and activities for its members, serves as a venue for interaction of fly fishers in Snohomish County, and promotes the conservation of fishery resources. EFFC is a non-profit organization and is affiliated with the Fly Fishers International organization, as well as one of its founding member clubs.

Our Conservation


   One of the Evergreen Fly Fishing Club's cornerstone principles is conservation. Since the club's founding, our members have continuously volunteered to educate others and work with projects to save our natural resources. We have a Conservation Committee that meets monthly to discuss conservation issues and related activities that the club can participate in or promote.
