Land of Legend Fly Fishers

About Us


To perpetuate the art and enjoyment of fly fishing for future generations and to promote the conservation of our natural resources through education and outreach.

 Our club was formed to unite fly fishers to focus their efforts on educating the public on the history, tradition and art of fly fishing.  We believe that fly fishing is the most enjoyable method of fishing and has the least adverse impact on game fish resources.

  Join us for a wide variety of activities; fly tying, rod building, net building, creel weaving, public education and conservation projects.  We are proud to offer something for everyone; the age range of our membership spans eight decades! Our annual events, the membership picnic and annual banquet are planned with all age groups in mind.

  If you have ever wanted to learn how to fly fish or tie flies but were intimidated by fly fishing myths, join us and allow us to take the mystery out of these wonderful pursuits!

Please check the Event Calendar for the dates/times of the meetings/events you are interested in.


  The Land of Legend Fly Fishers club was formed in 1990 by Dale Miller, Gene Snelling and Stan Faller.  They had attended a meeting of the Central Ohio Fly Fishers in Columbus and on the way home began discussing the merits of starting a fly fishing club in Newark.  Shortly thereafter the Land of Legends Fly Fishers came to be.  Over the first year meetings were held at various locations and times.  The first fly tying class took place in the home of Stan Faller with Gene Snelling instructing the nine students in attendance.  Eventually the meeting place moved to Zerger Hall and expanded to three meetings a month held on the second (business, third (fly tying) and fourth (rod building) Mondays of the month.  Today meetings are on the same schedule at Heritage Hall starting at 7pm.
