You need a younger and more energetic president than a man of my age and capacity could possibly provide. We certainly must have among our midst and geographic area a bright man or woman with the desire and passion for our sport to work with the wonderful folks on the board to provide the fly fishing community with conservation and educational that we ourselves generate.
Please be thinking of the person you would want as your president and representative, think of someone with:
- Charisma and Leadership skills
- Good communication skills
- New fresh ideas for marketing the council & federation
- A keen interest in educating the new comer to fly fishing and what it has to offer
- A love of our waters, habitats and our un-paralleled fish variety of fish species here in Northern California
Once you have identified the person with these skills or who could grow into them, please direct them to become involved and assure them that these men identified below are there to help (I know they will, they have done so for me!)

Of course recognizing except for a few women in the IFFF office all are volunteers and like you want to be out on streams, rivers or still waters ourselves.Click here for more information on how you and/or your fly fishing club can help.
