Community Service

Community service and charity work in the St Louis area is a main goal of the Flyfishers at the Crossing (FATC).  The FATC is a community of men that have a passion for fly fishing, but we are so much more than that! The FATC is about vital relationships with other men. Relationships that grow in trust and integrity with one another. More than being successful in life, we want to be significant in the lives of others. The FATC serves our community in any way we can by supporting local organizations like the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts and giving to charities such as Casting for Recovery, Project Healing Waters and the Mayfly Project.  We believe in conservation of our land, waterways and fisheries.  Most importantly, taking care of our own members and their families are high on our list. We like to follow the “I am third” principle of God first, others second and I am third. Check out the many community service events and charity work that we participate in. Come join us when we do.
