4CFF 4th Thursday's Zoom Meetings. Guests welcome. Contact us for an invite.
Education is fundamental to 4CFF members pursuit of their mission as they share their knowledge, skills and talents with others by providing fly fishing experiences to help young and not so young anglers become more aware of and connect with nature through fly fishing and conservation projects. To develop anglers who grow a passion that builds support for aquatic life and habitats in the next generation of voters are every bit as important as projects that build fish habitat and the love of fly fishing. 4CFF also shares a collection of library materials, texts and digital, that members use to further their own education and exploration.
Several times during the winter and early spring members host a 3-4 hours social and fly tying event where techniques and fly patterns are shared, and questions are answered amidst fly tying vises, feathers, hooks and snacks.
Casting instructors host events that provide participants the opportunity to gain insights, learn skills, share with others, and improve one's own casting ability.
When scheduled, you are invited to participate in FFI's (Fly Fishing International) Casting Challenge Events that put any fisher though a series of exercises that replicate real fishing experiences.
Over the years 4CFF has been providing fly fishing classes for middle school, high school and college students, and the general public of all ages that include fly tying and casting.
Several times a year members host a fly tying table at Yeagers Sporting Goods in support of local Boy Scout Program and other youth sponsored events.
