About FFC
Fly Fishing Canada is a not-for-profit organization aimed at using national and international fly fishing championships to promote issues concerning the sport, not only in Canada but worldwide. Although some anglers still balk at the concept of competitive fly fishing, these strictly catch-and-release events provide a focal point that brings fly fishers together from throughout Canada and the world, not only to exchange technical information about their sport, but also to address problems concerning conservation, water quality, habitat loss, and other environmental problems. Through these exchanges, many of the problems that plague freshwater fisheries in several countries may someday be beaten, or at least controlled in a meaningful manner. FFC has since been instrumental in introducing the mandatory inclusion of a Conservation Symposium at every international World Fly Fishing Championships, successful events that attract participation by noted scientists, biologists and conservationist from around the world. Further information about FFC can be found on its website, www.flyfishingcanada.net.
