About Us 2016-10-05T02:22:22+00:00

Juliana’s Anglers Sporting Club is a women’s fly fishing and field sporting club based in New York City. The purpose of our club is to encourage all women interested in fly fishing and other field sports to enjoy these activities with other women by making sports accessible through education, conservation, planned activities, and events.

Founded in 1995 by Nancy Zakon and other fly fishing enthusiasts, Juliana’s welcomes women at all levels of the sport, from the curious who have never held a rod, to avid fishers who spend as much time on the water as on land. In 2016, the Juliana’s voted to include field sports as part of club activities due to growing interest.

Comprised of women who enjoy the outdoors, the Juliana’s hold regular meetings for socializing and presentations on a wide variety of fly fishing and field sports topics. The club also runs trips to local waters throughout the fishing season and sponsors an annual two-day fly fishing school designed to introduce beginners to the sport, and ready more experienced anglers for the new season. We also organize field sports events, such as shotgun instruction, sporting clays, archery, and more.  We welcome suggestions for new events.

Membership is open to any woman, aged 18 or older, who is interested in fly fishing and other field sports. The membership fee is $35 per calendar year.
