Dame Juliana Anglers
The Dame Juliana Anglers is Phoenix's first women's angling club. The Dame Juliana Anglers is named after the First Lady of fly fishing, Dame Juliana Berners, who, in 1496, authored what is known to be the first fishing treatise, the Second Book of Albans.

The goal of this informal group is to bring women anglers together to fish, socialize, learn about other women's fly fishing groups in other areas, organize fly fishing and fly tying classes and trips and have a generally enjoyable time. As Dame Juliana stated in her treatise, angling is the best of all sports because it is a "merry occupation, without care, anxiety or trouble...."

Dame Juliana Anglers is a club that promotes conservation, environmental issues, habitat improvement, and catch & release.

Federation of Fly Fishers
Welcome to the web site of the Federation of Fly Fishers, an international service organization dedicated to the betterment of the sport of fly fishing through Conservation and Education.

International Game Fish Association
IGFA's objectives are founded on the beliefs that game fish species, related food fish, and their habitats are economic, social, recreational, and aesthetic assets which must be maintained, wisely used and perpetuated; and that the sport of angling is an important recreational, economic, and social activity which the public must be educated to pursue in a manner consistent with sound sporting and conservation practices.

Recreational Fishing Alliance
As a salt water angler, you probably get as frustrated as we do when the federal government the state legislatures and even the courts impose unreasonable restrictions on your ability to enjoy recreational fishing.

Until recently, recreational anglers could not get a fair hearing.

But, now we have an organization that can fight back! RFA Members already have a lot to celebrate over. Our membership is growing stronger every day and, as our membership grows, so does the political clout. As individuals, our complaints will simply not be heard, but as a united group, we can and do stand up to anyone who threatens the sport we enjoy so much - fishing! I hope you will take a moment to read through our website and learn more about what you can do to help save our fish and protect our rights as recreational anglers.
