The Federation of Fly Fishers is a 43 year old international non-profit organization dedicated to the betterment of the sport of fly fishing through Conservation, Restoration and Education. The Federation of Fly Fishers and its Councils are the only organized advocate for fly fishers on an national and regional level.
Today the FFF has grown to over 300 clubs, and the organization is moving more and more toward being an organization comprised of individual members. Our goal is to support fisheries conservation and educational programs for all fish and all waters. Anywhere fly fishers have an interest, the FFF can and does play a role.
In the Bylaws, the purposes of the Federation are listed as follows:
- Cultivate and advance the art, science and sport of flyfishing as the most sporting and enjoyable method of angling and the way of fishing most consistent with the preservation and use of game fish resources;
- Be the voice for organized fly fishing;
- Promote conservation of recreational resources;
- Facilitate and improve the knowledge of fly fishing;
- Elevate the standard of integrity, honor, and courtesy of anglers:
- Cherish the spirit of fellowship among anglers everywhere;
- Establish and maintain liaison with other organizations of anglers and conservationists and government agencies concerned with the sport of angling; and
- Keep its members informed of developments of interest to the membership.
