The Fly Tying Group of Fly Fishers International (FFI) is dedicated to the preservation, enhancement and support of the art of fly tying as a historic element of the fly fishing experience. Archiving historic documents, development of educational and instructional materials, teaching and demonstrating the use of materials and tying techniques are fundamental to perpetuating the art of fly tying for anglers who fish with the artificial fly.
The Fly Tying Group publishes a quarterly newsletter, Tying Times, that is intended to inform members of its most current activities; as well as share information with our members that may be useful to them in their fly tying activities. Important functions are those that are open to all members at the annual meeting, rendezvous, workshops and fly tying demonstrations during Annual Fly Fishing Fairs. A Fly Tying Skills Awards Program has been implemented to encourage and assist members to improve and expand their fly tying skills. The Video Library shares information from some of the best fly tiers in the world tying their favorite fly patterns in a visual format. We continue to develop informational materials for sharing with FFI Clubs, Councils and members for use in their fly tying and teaching events. Many of these materials are available on the FFI website. Much of what the Fly Tying Group does revolves around sharing and teaching so that all members may help us achieve our purpose of preserving the art of fly tying and the fly fishing experience.
