About the FATC
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) St. Louis, Missouri fly fishing organization promoting fly fishing and fellowship.
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 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 National Park, South Platte, Arkansas, Gunnison, Colorado, Yampa, Frying Pan, Eagle, Roaring Fork and Taylor rivers in Colorado, the North Fork of the White river in southern Missouri, Lake Taneycomo in Branson, and many nearby trips to include Cardiac Hill, Montauk, Meramac river, 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, and 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 fly fishers is now over 150 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.
