Fly Fishers International has been delivering educational opportunities to its members and the fly fishing community for over 50 years. From the very first "conclave" in Eugene, Oregon to now, our members have been sharing their skills and talents with people across the country and around the globe.
Today the Education Committee of FFI has been working to gather high quality materials for the Learning Center, an in-person and online resource for our members, clubs and the fly fishing community. In addition, the Committee is offering education grants and scholarships through new programs that were approved in 2018.
Support for our efforts can be made through financial donations, participating in one of our programs or spreading the good word about our activities.
The FFI Learning Center is a new initiative that brings together FFI’s expertise in Fly Casting, Fly Tying, Fly Fishing Skills, and Conservation Education for the benefit of FFI members and the fly fishing community. The Learning Center’s core belief is that through education, including both angling skills and environmental stewardship, fly fishing will grow and be preserved for future generations.
The Learning Center focuses on educational and instructional programs for all fly fishers at all skill levels. The Learning Center includes both in-person workshop instruction and web-based instructional materials downloadable from the FFI website.
The Inaugural Launch of the FFI Learning Center will occur at the Boise Fair in August 2018.
An important element of FFI's education focus includes the granting of funds to our members, clubs, councils and other education efforts to recognize and assist in the implementation of local educational projects that further the education efforts of the FFI. It is through these projects that the FFI and its members ultimately practice and demonstrate our commitment to promoting fly fishing through education. Click here for more information.
