DRiFT - DuPage Rivers Fly Tyers - Conserving, Restoring, and Educating Through Fly Fishing

Weekly Meetings and Guest Speakers

DRiFT meets every Tuesday at 7p.m. from September through May at The College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn.

Tuesday nights are the opportunity to learn something new! Typically, one of our members will teach us how to tie a new fly pattern...or demonstrate a new technique. Several times a year, "celebrity" fly tyers and other fly fishing experts join us to share their knowledge and expertise. Past guests have included prominent tyers such as A.K. Best, Bob Clouser, Oliver Edwards and Chris Helm. We also welcome speakers of local interest; in fact, you just might learn how to find Muskies on the Fox River (yes our Fox River)!

If you are interested in presenting to DRiFT, or learing more about our Tying Program, please contact our Meetings Director by using our Contact Form.
