The Martha's Vineyard Rod & Gun Club is a private non-profit club for members and their guests. It has been serving the sportsman's community on the island since the early 1900's. The organization consists 100% of volunteers and the members donate thousands of man-hours each year to make all of their programs a reality.

The Rod & Gun Club is the only club of this type on Martha's Vineyard. It was founded in 1911 and incorporated in 1938. Since 1952, the club has been located on 16-acres of land in Edgartown overlooking spectacular Sengekontacket Pond and Nantucket Sound.

The facilities consist of a clubhouse, 1/2 mile of private, sandy, saltwater shoreline, two casting ranges, a 50-yard firing range, a 50-yard archery range, one skeet field and one trap field.

Fly-Tying Classes are one of the most popular activities in the club. Volunteers run the classes for three months during the winter. The clubhouse is packed with seasoned and novice fly-tyers from five to over eighty years of age. It's a wonderful evening for parents and their children, an opportunity to tell tall tales of fish caught, or listen to the experts reveal their secrets. The winter class kindles the interest in fly fishing and develop tomorrow's sportsmen. The island's future generation of fly fishermen is here. The classes are open to the public. Inquire here.


Held throughout the spring and summer at the club, these clinics give novice and experienced fly fishermen the opportunity to learn from the club's professional fly fishing instructors. The clinics are held on the club's two fly casting ranges. A selection of fly rods, tackle and other gear is available. It's a great way to learn how to cast a fly rod and catch striped bass, blues and bonito on flies. The Saltwater Fly Fishing Clinics are open to the public.


Twelve months a year, the club's National Skeet Shooting Association Certified Instructors offer group and individual private skeet lessons. It's a program that offers proper, safe and correct instruction to sportsmen who want to learn one of the worlds most popular clay target sports.
