The Flyfishers at The Crossing (FATC) is a fellowship for men with a passion for fly fishing, helping them grow in their faith through community service, charity and brotherhood.  We are a not-for-profit (501)(c)(3) organization based in the St. Louis, Missouri area and are not affiliated with any particular denomination or church.

The members of our fellowship are dedicated fly fishers. The "Flyfishers at The Crossing" fly fish not only in Missouri but throughout the United States.  Our members have fished as far away as Alaska, New Zealand, throughout the Rocky Mountain and Smokey Mountain states, and the great rivers of Missouri.  Some of our group trips have included the San Juan River in New Mexico, Yellowstone, South Platte river and the Dream Stream in Colorado, Steamboat Springs area, Streams of Virginia and North Carolina, the North Fork of the White river in southern Missouri, Lake Taneycomo in Branson, and many nearby trips to Cardiac Hill, Montauk, Meramac Spring, Current River, Little Piney river, Eleven Point river and Bennett Spring.

The FATC grew out of a fly fishing class which started in the Spring of 2007.  Now we have fly fishing classes, fly tying classes, a MDC Stream Team, besides the many trips we take together.  More importantly our community service and charitable work continues throughout the year. We also have many discounts on fly fishing gear that help the new fly fisher get started and the experienced fly fisher replenish.

Our community of flyfishers is now over 140 members strong. Throughout the year, trips are planned to hone our skills and strengthen our friendships.  Our motto "It isn't about the fly fishing" means we are more about being a brotherhood of men.

What's Happening

There is a lot happening around the FATC these days.  Here are just a few things that have been going on.....
Two roads crossed in the woods, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.  

Are you at the crossing of two roads in your life? Take the one less traveled and come join the Flyfishers at The Crossing. Interested - email us at ourFATC@gmail.com.
All Membership Appreciation Picnic
September 23, 2017

Over forty members attended our first membership appreciation picnic on this hot Saturday to enjoy food, drink, games and friendships. It was a fun day for all as raffle prizes were won and fly fishing golf was played for the big prizes. A BIG THANK YOU to our picnic committee, Matt McClure, Bill Lowry, Miles Meyer and Mike Bisaga for putting on an awesome afternoon. 
Winners of the fly fishing golf casting contest were first place - Bob Beckett, second place - Mike Chambers and third place - Bob Aslin.  
We hope to continue the picnic every year and may include entire families in the future. It was a great day to renew old friendships and make new ones. Check out some of the pictures of the day below:
