State Specific Issues

State Specific Issues 

Actions or circumstances that pose local concerns for wetlands, fisheries or other natural systems need not cross vast municipal or ecological boundaries to warrant review.  Each element of a natural system is at some biological level important to the function and health of that system and will interact in ways that affect fish, wildlife and our own human qualities of life.

Therefore, FFI Councils are encouraged to develop procedures, consistent with FFI Policies, that assist Councils, Clubs and members identify conservation issues that warrant evaluation of the Council Vice President of Conservation and FFI Board Conservation Committee for appropriate position and action on behalf of members and the fly-fishing community.
