Mid-Atlantic Council of Federation of Fly Fishers
One of 13 regional councils of the Federation of Fly Fishers, a national non-profit organization devoted to fisheries conservation and fly fishing education which is headquartered in Bozeman, Montana. The Mid-Atlantic Council (MAC) has hundredes of individuals and more than numerous local fly fishing clubs as members in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.
Each year FFF provides conservation grant money to member
clubs sponsoring stream improvement or conservation education
programs. A Youth Camp for aspiring fly fishers has been
held for several years in verious locations within the MAC states.
Other outreach activities include an annual banquet and regional meetings to raise funds for MAC’s conservation and education programs. These outreach efforts provide unique opportunities for MAC members to meet other fly fishers and to gain a perspective on fisheries issues in our region and across the U.S.
MAC affiliated and charter clubs are the backbone of the Council. Each of these clubs usually meet once a month with speakers and frequent instruction in fly tying, fly casting and fly fishing techniques.
Many beginning fly fishers learn the sport and improve their skills by joining these local clubs and participating in their activities. Many clubs schedule fishing outings and trips. Additionally, members have an opportunity to participate in conservation and stream improvement projects or teach children and adults about fly fishing and water resources protection.
