Since 1964, the Fly Fishers International (FFI) has been an organized voice for fly fishers. We represent all aspects of fly fishing from the art of casting instruction, fly tying and general fly fishing education, to the protection of our fresh and salt water fisheries. Fly Fishers International and its Councils are the only organized advocate for fly fishers on a national and regional level.
FFI currently has two types of clubs for those that are being associated with the organization. These are Charter and Affiliated Clubs. Each club has the opportunity of taking advantage of both FFI national and regional council programs and events. International clubs can only join as an Affiliate club.
