Since 2014 the BFC has been dedicated to connecting & serving the urban anglers of NYC. We believe in practicing sustainability, protecting our fisheries and uniting the urban angling community, not only in NYC but worldwide.

What Defines Us

Composed of a wide ranging group of individuals with five chapters (one in each borough) the BFC is the number one fishing organization in NYC. We’re a community of like-minded individuals hailing from all walks of life connecting on the same level thanks to fishing.

From pros to beginners, we treat each other with respect, learning from each other and having fun while fishing year-round. We give back to our city in many ways, for example, we fund trips for kids from underserved communities to go striped bass fishing.

The club started in 2014 with three simple rules: leave the place you fish cleaner than you found it, if you kill a fish it must be eaten and if you don’t get a picture of your catch it never happened. Since then the only thing that’s changed is the number of adventures, friendships, and fish caught – all which are products of Brooklyn Fishing Club and the incredible group of members that keep the good times going. Join today and get in on the action!

Non-Stop Fishing

From fluke fishing Jamaica Bay in the summer to ice fishing Lake George for trout in the winter our club members never stop fishing.


If you’re looking to learn how to fish or improve we’re here to help. We know how to catch fish anywhere on the planet and will help you do the same.

Weekly Fishing Trips

We organize trips on a weekly basis 12 months out of the year and members are always invited. Whether porgy fishing for a day on skiffs or surf fishing for bluefish at Rockaway Beach, we do our best to meet up and fish once a week.
