Become part of an organization that has existed for over 50 years. The International Federation of Fly Fishers is an international non-profit organization dedicated to the betterment of the sport of fly fishing through Conservation, Restoration and Education. The organization and its Councils are the only organized advocate for fly fishers on a regional, national and international level.
The idea to create a national federation of fly fishing clubs by people who also were willing to take action, seems to have sprung up on both coasts in the early 1960's. In June 1965, the first Conclave of the Federation of Fly Fishers took place in Eugene, Oregon and was hosted by the McKenzie Flyfishers. It was immediately a national organization with the inclusion not only of west coast fly fishing clubs, but also the Theodore Gordon Flyfishers from New York. Twelve clubs had joined the Federation by the end of 1965, and by the second Conclave held at Jackson Hole, Wyoming in September 1966, the number of clubs had risen to 29.
"It occurs to me that a loose federation of fly fishing groups could be of considerable value."
Letter from Lee Wulff to Bob Wethern of the Flyfishers Club of Oregon May 27, 1964
