The "Salty" Flyrodders of New York, the sole remaining chapter of the original Salty Flyrodders of America, was founded in 1966 by Neil Druger.
He enrolled four pioneer members: Lou Rossi, Dom DeSalvo, Erwin Zobel, and Hammond Fox. From this humble beginning, the club now boasts a membership list in excess of 200.
Monthly meetings are held at the Queens Botanical Garden in Flushing, NY on the first Monday of each month with the exception of January, July, and September, when they take place on the second Wednesday.
Members gather about 7 PM to get reacquainted and swap fish tales and the meeting gets underway at 8 PM. Activities range from fly tying sessions to well known guest speakers from the salt water fly fishing community. In the warmer months, fly casting clinics are held on the lawn adjacent to the meeting hall. The club sponsors guided trips throughout the season to virtually all accessible fishing spots on Long Island. The trips give long time club members a chance to fish with one another and to help new members learn the art of saltwater flyfishing.
