About Us

Where can I fly fish in Nebraska?
In just about any of the numerous lakes, ponds, streams, and rivers in the state! At CFF meetings you can get the latest fishing reports on where the fish are biting in Nebraska, and elsewhere, throughout the year.

What kinds of fish can I catch on a fly in Nebraska?
Practically anything that swims. Bass, Bluegill, Bullfrogs, Carp, Catfish, Crappie, Gar, Musky, Perch, Pike, Sunfish, Trout, and Walleye. Fly fishing isn’t just about catching Trout (although we love them too!). Members can even participate in the CFF annual CARPFEST – it’s all about food, fun and fishing for the wily carp.

How do I get started?
Join us for our monthly meetings. Even if you’ve never held a fly rod we’ll help you get started. You will meet CFF members who can show you what equipment is used for the sport and help you develop the needed skills to become proficient.

The Cornhusker Fly Fishers, Inc. was formed as a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation for the pursuit of conservation, education and the promotion of fly-fishing and fly tying. We welcome anyone to participate in our club from seasoned fishermen to beginning fly-fishers.

In addition, the CFF has several qualified fly tyers and casting experts to help anyone just starting out as a fly-fisher.  We can get you started tying and casting, as well as, advise you about equipment purchases, places to fish and how to fish the spot.
