NORTH COAST FLY FISHERS
Committed to providing education in the best practices and techniques of the sport of fly fishing, including fly tying, casting, and fish and water conservation.
ABOUT OUR CLUB
The North Coast Fly Fishers (NCFF) is a charter club of the FFI. Its purpose is to promote fly fishing as the most enjoyable and sporting method of fishing.
NCFF is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit corporation, established as an FFI club, and international fly fishing organization. It is organized exclusively to educate its members and the public on the art and science of fly fishing for all species of fish within all types of waters; to conserve the natural habitat, and thereby facilitate the continued existence of all types of fish; and finally, to bring enjoyment to anyone involved in fly fishing and the natural habitat of fish everywhere.
WHAT WE DO
Furthering our cause and promoting the sport of fly fishing is the most important goal of our Club. We seek to support, empower, and provide high quality resources to our members and the community. Our success isn’t measured in terms of wealth or profit margin, but by the value we provide to those organizations we partner with and communities we serve.
