We are concerned that this proposal, if enacted, will undo hard earned protections for streams and wetlands across the United States.
FFI, along with many other sports organizations wrote to Congress urging their support for a new bipartisan budget agreement that provides relief from impending sequestration cuts and allows for strong annual funding of natural resources conservation in the Fiscal Year 2018 appropriations process.
FFI is strongly opposed to any attempt to reclassify our National Monuments through Executive Order and fully supports the long-standing provisions of the Antiquities Act of 1906. Let’s protect these important public lands and waters for future generations.
FFI Adopts Public Lands and Waters of United States Policy - Fly Fishers International is a global organization dedicated to the support, enhancement and protection of the recreational opportunities and enjoyment of fishing with the artificial fly. We do this through teaching all aspects of fly fishing and most importantly through our advocacy, demonstration and voice for conservation of our natural resources. Clearly, conservation of fishes and their habitats is fundamental to our opportunities and those of our children to fly fish.
