The Members of the Fourth Corner Fly Fishers (located in Bellingham, WA) are united by our
enjoyment of the sport of fly fishing and by
our desire to preserve and enhance fishing
opportunities for all. To these ends, we will
strive to promote conservation of angling
brotherhood and to broaden the
understanding of fellow anglers.|
The purposes for which the Club was formed are:
About our club...
- To operate a social club for the pleasure, association and recreation of its members engaged in fly fishing activities.
