In many respects, the history of The Stonefly Society of the Wasatch is a history of fly fishing in Utah. In 1977, a group of concerned anglers and conservationists began holding random meetings at the original Angler’s Inn on Highland Drive. This group consisted of Jim Talley, Dave McCormick, Lee Bishop, Joe Shaw, Gean Snow, and Bill Hayes. They met for approximately six months before deciding to hold regular public meetings and apply for membership with both Trout Unlimited and the Federation of Fly Fishers. The Stonefly Society of the Wasatch was accepted as a chapter of the Federation of Fly Fishers in 1978 and subsequently accepted as a chapter of Trout Unlimited later that same year.
