Fly Tying Skills Award Program
The IFFF Fly Tying Group exists to promote and encourage the art of fly tying. We take “promoting” to have a two-fold meaning: inspiring more people to take an interest in our craft and helping them to become more knowledgeable and accomplished tiers. The Fly Tying Group is dedicated to the preservation, enhancement and support of the art of fly tying.
For individuals to improve as tiers, they need to be able to measure their progress. The IFFF Fly Tying Skills Awards Program provides IFFF members with the opportunity to develop or reinforce their fly tying skills and test their progress against a consistent, standard at three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold.
The goal of the Awards Program is to encourage IFFF members to develop and improve their fly tying skills at their own pace through a structured learning plan with progressive goals. The Program is meant to be informative, enjoyable and encourage camaraderie and co-operation amongst those taking part. In addition, it can also assist Clubs and instructors in the planning and delivering of fly tying courses. Participation is entirely voluntary. No IFFF member or Club is under any obligation to take part.
Below is a directory of the tiers who have received the award.
