FFI Affiliate Club Benefits


Joining a larger community of fly fishers is beneficial to preserving the legacy of fly fishing for all fish, all waters, and increasing your own opportunities to enjoy the sport.  Your club can make a bigger impact by becoming a Affiliate Club of FFI.  


Membership Incentive & Industry Partner Program

With FFI's Membership Incentive Program, for every 12 new FFI members your club recruits, your club receives $75 towards the purchase of merchandise in our Industry Partner Program.  Our industry leading partners provide products at discounts for club fundraisers, education events, and member recruitment and encouragement in local projects. 


Affiliate Club Insurance Program

Once only offered to Charter Clubs, FFI now offers an affordable insurance program to Affiliate Clubs.  The master policy purchased by FFI provides:

  • Directors and Officers Liability ($1M)
  • General Liability ($2M per incident/$4M aggregate)
  • Umbrella coverage ($1M)
  • Hired or non-owned automobile liability coverage ($1M)

Open enrollment forms are sent out in June, but clubs can join any time during the year.


Learning Center

FFI's Education Committee has published learning modules for 4 major areas: Casting, Conservation, Fly Fishing Skills, and Fly Tying.  Clubs can use the materials to teach and help your members enhance their skills.  These comprehensive presentations will soon be accompanied by instructor teaching manuals.  Try it out at one of your club meetings.


Conservation & Education

FFI provides grants for conservation and education projects to councils, clubs, and other organizations that are furthering the mission of the organization.  Habitat restoration and education activities are a top priority for FFI.  In addition, we offer scholarships for students who are focusing on fisheries or conservation type degrees.
