The Plantation is a beautiful facility that is well suited for the show with direct access to Kings Bay for fishing, plenty of green space for outdoor events, good food and many other amenities that include a 27-hole golf course.

The Florida Council IFFF invites you to join us at the Plantation Inn in Crystal River, Florida for a meeting of all Florida fly fishers. Join with other fly fishers to celebrate the wonderful fishing experiences of our beautiful state. Learn the latest techniques, the best places to fish, which flies to use and meet new like-minded friends.

You can see the best fly tiers in the country, cast with some of the best instructors in the world and hear all about fishing opportunities and locations. You will be able to hear seminars from the best fly fishing guides and celebrities statewide and receive instructions from IFFF Master Certified Casting Instructors.

This is a social event so bring the whole family and all your friends. There will be a gathering for Pizza on Friday evening and a huge banquet on Saturday. You are all encouraged to attend. A money saving raffle will help you bring home all the latest equipment, take that trip of a lifetime or acquire those wonderful toys all fly fishers need.

Accommodations are beautiful and Plantation has shown their support by offering heavily discounted room rates to all who can stay. In addition they will be donating to the council for everyone who rooms with them. So... your stay will assist the council in bringing the services of the IFFF to all Florida anglers. Mark your calendars, down load the registration form and mail it in just as soon as it becomes available online.

We will be offering seminars and programs for everyone. Some will be free and some you will need to register for. Your support of the Florida Council of the International Federation of Fly Fishers is an important contribution to conservation and fly fishing education in Florida.

Programs and Seminars
The Council wishes everyone have a chance to go to the seminars or programs of their choice.  We are therefore not charging any set fee for these.  We ask that you donate an amount you can afford to defray the costs.  If you can not afford to donate you are still invited to attend. The council wants to bring the services of the Federation to you in a manner that shows our core values.  Those are: education and the promotion of fly fishing.  No price or cost can substitute for the dissemination of good fellowship and a love of the sport.
