Since 1964, Fly Fishers International (FFI) has been an organized voice for fly fishers around the world. We represent all aspects of fly fishing – from the art of fly tying and casting, to the protection of and access to fisheries around the world. Today, our mission is active stewardship focused on conservation, education, and community, to ensure the legacy of fly fishing for all fish in all waters continues.
For most of us, fly fishing is more than just a sport. It’s been central to our lives in many ways, providing a much-needed break from the daily grind, and giving us time on the water we’ll never forget, as well as friendships that will last a lifetime.
That’s why I’m especially excited to announce that our organization is undergoing a significant evolution that I believe will better reflect the importance fly fishing plays in all our lives.
The new name of our organization is Fly Fishers International (FFI), and with it comes a reinvigorated approach to our programs, mission, and purpose.
FFI Adopts Public Lands and Waters of United States Policy - Fly Fishers International is a global organization dedicated to the support, enhancement and protection of the recreational opportunities and enjoyment of fishing with the artificial fly. We do this through teaching all aspects of fly fishing and most importantly through our advocacy, demonstration and voice for conservation of our natural resources. Clearly, conservation of fishes and their habitats is fundamental to our opportunities and those of our children to fly fish.
An FFI team of 19 strong, including 10 MCI's and 5 THCI's, ran a booth, provided free instruction all day and put on 15 demonstrations at the inaugural London Fly Fishing Fair("LFFF") on March 10-11, 2017 in the spectacular setting of the Business Design Centre, Islington, London.
