Welcome to the Central Ohio Fly Fishers Web site

...It is the mission of the Central Ohio Fly Fishers club to promote and encourage the sport and art of fly-fishing by providing a social setting to allow its members to share information and experiences through educational programming and activities, to build and promote fellowship among its members and to encourage the conservation and preservation of our natural resources.

COFF meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month during the fall, winter (except for December), and spring.

NEXT MEETING: Our next scheduled meeting is on May 13, 2014 at Griggs Reservoir (North of Fishinger Road and Riverside Drive)  (MAP) will be a BARBEQUE PICNIC. There will also be a KAYAK DEMONSTRATION. Burgers, hotdogs, buns, condiments, plates and utensils will be provided but attendees should bring their beverage of choice (park doesn't allow alcohol) and a side dish to share. We hope to see you there!
