About

Fly Fishers of Idaho, Inc. (FFI) is a Boise, Idaho organization whose purpose is to foster sportsmanship, education, and conservation in our sport. But more than that, it is to encourage family and social interaction.”Fly Fishers of Idaho, Incorporated  is a non- profit corporation  organized under Section 501(c)(3) Public Charity Status 509 (a) (2)  of the Internal Revenue Code, incorporated in the State of Idaho.”

Meetings

The regular meetings of FFI are held on the third Thursday of each month at the Idaho Department of Fish & Game Headquarters building located at 600 Walnut Street in Boise. The meetings generally start at 6:30 pm and last for about 2 hours. We meet in the Trophy Room at the northeast corner of the building (rear left as you drive up in front). The public is welcome to attend.

Meetings begin with a brief opening statement leading to a skills activity program on subjects such as fly tying, stream reading, conservation, knot tying, casting, or slide shows of favorite fishing spots and other member activities. Following the skills portion of the program we introduce and finalize Club business for the month then pause for a brief recess and visiting period. The main program is on a subject of topical interest by an expert in that field.

Equipment

We have an extensive library that is available for use by all members. It contains books and videos of interest to the novice and experienced fisherman alike. We update the library annually with new titles. In addition to books and videos we have a selection of rods and reels which members can check out. We also have some fly rods and reels with line, which can be checked out by members along with some fly tying equipment and rod building equipment.

Flyline

We publish a monthly newsletter called The Flyline which is sent to members and other clubs to keep them up-to-date and informed about Club activities. It contains information about upcoming meetings, Fish-Outs, Conservation information, items of general interest to members, and a Bulletin Board where Club members can offer items for sale or trade.

Fish-Out

We hold a Fish-Out every month where members may get together and go to a designated hot spot to fish. There is a lot of camaraderie at these outings and you can learn about new places to go and techniques to use there (might even be able to bum some flies off one of the other folks).

In early spring we hold a Casting Clinic. It’s a great opportunity for Club members and the public to learn fly casting from some of the most experienced fly fishermen in Idaho.

The summer is dedicated to Club projects such as stream rehabilitation. We have an ongoing project at Loving Creek (feeds into Silver Creek) where we have rebuilt sections of the creek. We participate in many Idaho Department of Fish & Game sponsored work projects.
