Pine Island Fly Fishing Club meetings to recommence!

The Pine Island Fly Fishing Club will resume monthly meetings beginning Monday, March 25. It will start with a social event at 1730 (5:30 pm for those who do not have a DD-214) at Street Eatz & Ale in Bokeelia, thanks to the generosity of proprietor Reid Freeman, who is donating the space for the club to host its meetings. 👍

The club, which started in March 2015, hosted meetings for five years until 2020, when it stopped meeting due to COVID concerns. Resuming club functions were further delayed due to Hurricane Ian, which turned much of Pine Island into something akin to a War Zone.

Finally, after four years, the club is restarting meetings! 😎

Everyone is welcome, and no fly fishing experience is necessary to attend. We look forward to seeing everybody!

A $3 per person donation will be accepted at the door to help cover club expenses. Street Eatz & Ale is located at 5508 Avenue A, Bokeelia, Florida 33922
