The Englewood Fishing Club was started in April, 2004 by a small group of recreational fishermen who just wanted to meet, talk and socialize with other fishermen and in the process become better fishermen, go fishing more and help conserve the marine environment for the future. We are now an ongoing sport fishing and social organization with a membership of over 120 fishing enthusiasts.
