The Historic Ocean Springs Saltwater Flyfishing Club
HOSSFly is a fly-fishing club that has been active in Ocean Springs since 1968. We get together in sportsmanship, fellowship, conservation and learning through the sport of fly fishing.
HOSSFly Club meetings are on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM at the Ocean Springs Yacht club, 100 Front Beach Dr., Ocean Springs, Ms. New members are always welcome. Dues are $25/year or $15 if paid by February 28.
During our meetings we plan fly-fishing related activities, hear fishing reports or a guest speaker, show a fly-fishing video, demonstrate knot tying, practice fly-casting or learn how to tie new flies.
Pompano Fishing Trip - Postponed - stay tuned for a rescheduled Saturday later in July.
