Have a picture of a fish you caught, email me the picture with the location caught and how big/estimated weight of the fish. Members would like to see more pictures of catches. It's also an eye catcher for the web to attract new members. Make sure your renew your membership. You, each one of you, make the club what it is. You make events like Kids Day happen. The more members we have and they attend meetings, the more the club can do.

SPORTSMAN EXPO IN HAMBURG,NY.

I want to thank all the members that showed up and spent time at the Expo. We added some members and distributed all the Federation magazines on hand. In addition, we got the word out about the "KIDS DAY" project.

One of Clubs Goal accomplished was to develop a program to teach the youth about fly fishing, stream enviroment and restoration, and the benefits of catch and release. The Federation lists the following:

KIDS FLY FISHING COUNTS WITH THE FEDERATION OF FLY FISHERS

FFF has been dedicated to helping kids become flyfishers for over 40 years. There are some very important reasons:

  • Anglers are a lower and lower percentage of the population, because fewer kids are joining our ranks.

  • Efforts that build support for fish in the next generation of voters are every bit as important as projects that build fish habitat.

  • Who will be voting on water resource issues in 10 years? Kids who are 8-10 years old now!.

  • High profile programs like kids's fishing days and one-time outings do not begin to replace the grandfather, father, uncle kind of mentoring that caused most of today's anglers to take up fly fishing.

You know that kids count with FFF, because:

  • FFF `s loaner fly rods, reels, lines, tying vises and other equipment have been used with over 15,000 kids over the last 7 years. This equipment is always in use by fly fishing clubs, state agencies, regional conclaves and even federal programs.

  • FFF has given over 550 fly rods and lines for permanent use in kids fly fishing programs.

  • FFF publishes how-to booklets, on fly casting, fly tying, insects and other topics. These booklets are especially well-suited for classes of beginning fly fishers

  • FFF maintains an extensive video and film library for use in educational programs

  • FFF Offers water resources and fisheries curriculum material to schools throughout the U.S. aimed at grades k- 12.

  • FFF Holds an annual kids fly fishing camp

  • FFF offers a reduced-cost membership for kids under 17 years of age

  • In addition, FFF member clubs serve thousands of kids directly:

    A recent survey of FFF clubs indicated that they offered classes and fishing activities to over 4,500 kids and young adults every year. This did not include extraordinary efforts by clubs like the North Louisiana Fly Fishers, who taught 6,800 kids in one summer in a State of Lousiana aquatic education program!

INTERESTED? Want your kids to learn about fly fishing?

  • Join FFF and get in contact with a local affiliated club. Ask about their kids programs.

  • Attend the National Conclave & Fly Fishing Show (usually held end of July / beginning of August)

  • Sign your kids up for the Annual FFF Fly Fishing Youth Camp in Livingston, Montana

  • Contact FFF if you have questions at (406) 222-9369

"Become involved and pass on your knowledge for future fly fishermen", as well as all fishermen.

Ron caught this 46" and released it alive. A few more inches and it would have been taller then he is.
