How to become an FFI International Affiliate Club


A group wishing to become an International Affiliate Club will need to be an existing club formed in accordance with local country regulations dealing with non-profit organizations. Since these regulations vary by country, FFI is not in a position to give guidance on the formation of a new organization. Other requirements include:

  • At least three club officers (three top leadership positions) must be FFI members. 
  • The initial and yearly information submitted by the club should include a list of officers (President, VP, Secretary, and Treasurer) and contact person, number of total club members, and other as determined by FFI HQ.
  • The club will provide a list of club membership, including contact information for FFI’s use. FFI will use the member contact information to distribute fly fishing educational material and to send information about FFI membership benefits to the club members. FFI will only use the contact information for these purposes and will not share the contact information outside of FFI. The club members will be given the opportunity to “opt out” of these communications if they desire.

Tiers of total club membership (FFI and non-FFI members) and fees/year:

  • Up to 99 members - $50.00 USD
  • 100+ members - $100 USD
