Welcome To The Home Of The British Fly Casting Club

The BFCC was formed in 2003, based on traditional fly fishing values with a very modern technical influence, having the following objectives:

  • To provide a sociable Club environment where casters of any ability can maximise their potential, whether it be to better understand tackle, catch more fish, or to cast a long way.
  • Under The Club’s ethos, ‘personal best, not must win’, it is up to individuals to set their own objectives, but with the support of a group of very enthusiastic casters making it fun. This is clearly demonstrated by the BFCC ‘have a go for gold’ Distance Badge Scheme, starting at 25 yards and rising in 5 yard increments.
  • Provide ongoing coaching opportunities for members at all BFCC Meetings, with very reasonable membership fees and generous concessions.
  • Provide very good casting outfits for casters to try out and to use without charge.
  • Set clear and simple rules for all BFCC casting events to ensure the maximum enjoyment of casters.
  • Organise and publicise regional BFCC Meetings, open to any casters, but independent of commercial sponsorship. These will feature the usual BFCC events - The Distance Badge Scheme, Distance Competitions for single handed #5F, #7F, T38 and double handed T120.  There are BFCC Distance Badges and Trophies as reward, but no cash, or equipment, or other prizes.
  • Offer a broad, web-based forum to encourage dialogue between casters to improve knowledge and casting ability.
  • Encourage casters to practise between BFCC Meetings, preferably in pairs or more, to watch each other’s performance and suggest improvements. It is a fact that ‘a watcher sees more of THIS game’.
  • Keep detailed records of casting distances achieved at BFCC Meetings for various age categories, to encourage better casting and, hopefully, keep people casting much longer.
