FFI is seeking sponsors and exhibitors for the 2018 International Fly Fishing Fair in Boise, Idaho. Click "Read the Article" to find links to important information.
Three pillars — conservation, education and community — provide the foundation for our vision of the future of fly fishing — a future in which anglers have access to prime waters where fish can thrive in healthy, protected habitats; in which learning never stops and artistry is not forgotten; and that recognizes the true value of camaraderie. If we want this legacy to be experienced by future generations, we have to work to make it happen — and that can only happen if we work together.
