NCCFFF is proud to announce the winner of our 2016 KeepemWet Photo Contest is Micheal Abramson. Micheal took an amazing picture of a Brown Trout caught on the Nevis River, New Zealand. Thanks to Micheal for contributing and to all those anglers who added the principles of KeepemWet fish handling to their fishing expertise for 2016.
We want to also thank NCCFFF custom rod builder Ciff Sullivan for his contribution of a beautiful custom wrapped 5 wt. Sage MOD rod that any angler would be proud to own.
Thanks to advances in science, we now have a better understanding of the impacts that handling can have on the long-term health of fish. We believe that anglers have the responsibility to apply this knowledge to their fish handling practices and should strive to minimize the impacts on the fish they release. If you would to know more about keepemwet principles please visit the KEEPEMWET FISHING website or watch the KeepEmWet in the Net video.
Join the International Federation of Fly Fishers
The Voice of Fly Fishers Everywhere
If you love fly fishing and wish to propagate and protect it, the IFFF is for you. Through grass-roots and international programs in education, conservation, and opportunities to meet, fish, and work with fellow fly casters, you'll enrich your own fishing experiences.
Your voice, in concert with other IFFF members, will be a strong force in guaranteeing healthy ecosystems for fish and fishing.
We're Part of the International Federation of Fly Fishers
When you join the NCCFFF you are really joining the International Federation of Fly Fishers, an international organization dedicated to fly fishing exclusively. The IFFF motto is "All fish, all waters", and they mean it—and so do we. No matter where you fly fish, in a green pond for bluegill or in a blue sea for sailfish, the IFFF is your best advocate to promote and preserve fly fishing.
The NCCFFF serves the fish and fly fishers of the northern parts of California as well as Nevada, the Hawaiian Islands and Guam.
We are a 501(c)(3) [Fed. Id. #94-3124970]
Our Fun Side
The fun begins with going fishing. You may do it alone, or with a buddy, or as part of a fly fishing club—whatever suits you. The NCCFFF doesn't sponsor fishing trips, but many of its affiliated clubs do. Even so, when you go fishing, the NCCFFF can be there with you: in the fly you learned to tie at an NCCFFF fly tying event, the casting you improved at a casting clinic, the fishing strategies you learned at Conclave seminars, and on it goes...
Fly fishers seem to like each other's company. We swap stories, we share knowledge, we have fun together, and we work together to protect fishing resources. Join us.
