Welcome to the Diablo Valley Fly Fishing Club website. We are a group of men and women who share a common interest in the sport of fly fishing. The members of the DVFF help each other develop their skills and knowledge in the pursuit of this fascinating sport.

The DVFF serves its members through club activities and resources including a novice seminar, a Youth Fly Fishing program, skills seminars, fishing outings, guest speakers at regular meetings, an online forum, a DVD lending library, Facebook page, and an annual auction.

The club sponsors a scholarship for research at the UC Davis College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, Center of Aquatic Biology and Aquaculture. The DVFF also supports a large Trout In the Classroom program and the local Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing-Martinez, CA program.

Anyone interested in fly fishing is eligible and welcome to become a member of the DVFF. For a little insight into our club, watch The DVFF's 50th Anniversary video.

Fly Fishing for Stripers in the American River
with Andy Guibord


Striper fishing has been a long-time obsession for Andy Guibord. And working as a guide out of Kiene’s Fly Shop, he has developed an intimate knowledge of this wonderful game fish.in American River. 

Andy was born in Detroit, Mich., and spent his early childhood chasing butterflies and fishing on his uncle’s lake, where he learned to dangle a wiggly crawler for bluegill and catfish. During 1979, at age 18 he moved to California two months out of high school to attend Yuba College, then moved to Sacramento to earn a master’s degree in the fine arts. 

He began fly fishing during 1986 and was soon hired as a guide by Kiene’s Fly Shop, where he continues to work. Andy has since traveled the world with a fly rod. He has a captain’s license and teaches casting both single- and two-handed rods. His photographs have been published in several fly fishing magazines.
