The Northern California Council of the Federation of Fly Fishers consists of members from Northern CA as well as Northern NV.  We are one of 16 Councils within the FFF and along with them, support Conservation, Education and Restoration. There are 30 clubs within our Council, approximately 1200 individual members and we are growing strong.  

 We continue to offer our members the opportunity to get involved in the issues concerning conservation, the ability to learn from the experienced flyfisher, as well as the novice who has the desire to experience our sport and share their knowledge with others.  By joining the FFF, you are able to take advantage of the many benefits listed below.  You can join as an individual, or through your local club.  The clubs receive support from the FFF, for the purpose of conservation and restoring local waterways and for education through classes in casting, fly tying, and knots.  We also host 2 fund raisers throughout the year and also coordinate other events with affiliate organizations, who support our beliefs.  These include Trout Unlimited, Friends of the River, CA Sportfishing Protection Alliance, Cal Trout, CA Dept of Fish & Game and many more.
