Putting together the annual Fly Fishing Fair is an
enormous job and the great experience you enjoy as an attendee is the
result of the hard work of literally hundreds of volunteers.
There are four main groups of volunteers and they include: the dedicated
teachers/instructors who demonstrate and teach workshops, the Fly
Fishing Fair Show Committee, the Local Committee, and the people who
volunteer on site.
Our instructors, demonstrators, presenters all
volunteer their time and offer their expertise to provide a top notch
learning experience and we can’t begin to thank them enough. These
individuals commit their time and talent to provide the instruction
which is large part of what the Fair is about - networking and learning.
The Fly Fishing Fair committee works throughout
year to plan every detail of the show. They are charged with overseeing
each main category, organizing schedules, sending correspondence, and
providing assistance to FFI staff. They are an amazing group of people
who put hours of time and energy into producing the Fair.
The local committee is a group of volunteers from
the host location who help to organize everything on the local level.
They work all year to put the pieces together and make your experience
one you won’t soon forget. This includes welcoming the FFI to setting
up venues, food service, requesting local donations for our auction and
raffles, putting together the exceptional lineup of local workshops, and
Our on-site volunteers have many jobs that include
but are not limited to helping with the auction and raffle, registration desk, day pass, assisting with the kid’s camp, and making sure seminars run
efficiently. The people who take the time to assist with volunteer
duties throughout the week are those who keep things on track and
running smoothly during the week.
Volunteers are needed for the upcoming Fair in 2017. If you would like to help, sign up now!
