Fly Fishers International intends to employ a professional Executive Officer to lead the organization in its representation of the fly fishing community around the world. Responsibilities of the Executive will be to oversee and expand its operations, represent a strong conservation voice for “all fish in all waters”, maintain excellence in all aspects of fly fishing education, foster community for all who fish with the artificial fly and establish a strong financial base to ensure fly fishing as an enduring outdoor experience.
Jen Ripple, FFI Board Member and publisher of Dun Magazine, was interviewed for an article in the New York Times about women in fly fishing. Read what she had to say.
Now more than ever the fly fishing community needs your financial support as the future of our sport is threatened by policies adversely affecting both habitat and opportunities to fly fish.
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.
