History

The Upper Midwest Council was formed in March of 2012.  The former Great Rivers Council had been inactive for several years and also comprised a huge multi state area.   Phil Greenlee, the CEO of the Federation of Fly Fishers, facilitated the creation of the Upper Midwest Council from the Great Rivers Council with a new board of directors and pared down geographic area to include the states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Northern Illinois.  The Upper Midwest Council joins the other FFF councils around the country to support and enhance the local charter and affiliate clubs.
