FFI Councils

Welcome FFI Councils!  Thank you for being a vital part of FFI and its mission - YOU ARE OUR FEET IN THE STREAMS!  This page is dedicated to all your FFI Council needs.  If you don't see what you are looking for contact clubs@flyfishersinternational.org or call 406-222-9369 Ext 2.

As all of us strive to navigate the challenges presented to our communities in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, Fly Fishers International recognizes we are facing some important decisions. We know that people are excited to get back together with friends at club and council meetings, spend time on the water, and enjoy social events, but we need to be cautious. CLICK HERE for guidance issued by Fly Fishers International.

FFI has provided every council with a free Zoom account to assist with connecting electronically. If you have further needs, here is a list of free services which you might find helpful.  If, in the event, the free services are inadequate to meet your needs please contact the FFI office for further assistance. 406-222-9369 X2.
