Join GBF

If you are already a GBF member attempting to access the new Membership features, please use the My Membership / Profile menu option!

You are invited to our club meetings which are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the Granite Bay Activities Center (the ‘clubhouse’) on Folsom Lake.

It’s suggested to arrive early as parking can fill quickly.  Note: During Winter Months the Folsom Lake Park Entry gate closes at 7:00 pm, so don’t be late. It’s a long walk from the gate.

1. Click the above application link and fill in all highlighted spaces online.  Individual membership is $35 per calendar year.  Family membership is $40 per calendar year.  In December, membership includes the following full year.  Join from January through November, and membership only extends to the end of the current year.

2. Be sure to download, read and accept the liability waiver.

3. Continue to complete the online application, and select either a Family or Individual membership.

4. After completing the online registration and credit card payment, read the congratulation and welcome pages, perhaps printing them for future reference.

5. When ready to log in for your first time, use the ‘My Membership / Profile’ menu option with your email address and check your confirmation email for your initial password, then log in now with your new credentials, and complete your profile, and peruse the ‘Member Options’  menu options.  You can change your password to a more simple password using the Change Password option on your ‘About’ tab.

6. Proceed to the GBF Store and purchase name tags for yourself, and if you selected a family membership, also purchase name tag(s) for members of your family 18 years and older.  They will be then ordered and mailed within 3-4 weeks.

7. Also be sure to set aside time for the next club meeting – the 2nd Thursday of the month @ 7pm at our clubhouse on Folsom Lake at the end of Douglas Blvd. in Granite Bay.

Club activities include monthly meetings, organized fishing trips, fly tying classes with monthly clinics, informal get-togethers, casting clinics, net-building and rod-building classes, an annual picnic and more. Activities are planned to encourage participation by all family members.

Monthly meetings feature local (and sometimes world-renowned) experts who speak about flyfishing techniques and/or destinations, conservation activities, and other pertinent topics.  Each meeting also involves the telling of tall tales (and other local fishing news), reports on club activities, and perhaps most importantly, the opportunity to meet and mix with other people who share your fly fishing interests!
