FFI Learning Center

The FFI Learning Center is an 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 was at the Boise Fair in August 2018.

All materials presented in the Learning Center have been “beta” tested in workshops, and the material has received an editorial review and a quality control assurance process. The Learning Center materials are downloadable to your computer, free of charge.
