New England Fly Tyers

... To foster the art of fly tying, to promote the challenge of fly fishing, and to encourage conservation and sportsmanship.



2017 Open House



Welcome to the web site of the New England Fly Tyers (NEFT). 

NEFT is a non-profit organization of fly fishers and fly tyers.  The purpose of the organization is to foster the art  of fly tying, to promote the challenge of fly fishing, to encourage conservation and sportsmanship.

NEFT began in Worcester, MA in 1972 and is now entering its 43rd year as the New England Fly Tyers club.  Our current membership comes from over 50 cities and towns in Worcester County.   We believe that NEFT is one of the most active clubs of its kind.  We meet every Monday night from the Monday after Labor Day to the Monday before Memorial day, a total of 36 meetings in 9 months.




Guest Speaker: Tim Flagler

Tim Flagler is the owner of Tightline Productions, L.L.C., a video production company located in Califon, NJ. Although Tightline produces video programs over a wide range of topics, their speciality is fly fishing. Almost every week they produce a new fly tying or “how to” video which appears not only on their Vimeo and YouTube channels but on Midcurrent and the Orvis fly tying blog as well. These videos often get picked up by other sites too, including Frankenfly, Chiwulff, The Limp Cobra, Globalflyfisher, Gink and Gasoline and Wideopenspaces, just to name a few. Many of the tying videos take the viewer well beyond just the tying of the fly and show what it looks like underwater, what natural it represents and how it can be fished.
