Veterans First Fly Fishing (VFFF) essentially is a growing group of men and women Fly Fishers from Northern California Council of the Federation of Fly Fishers (NCCFFF), who conduct and/or participate in Fly Fishing Workshops for our veterans.
We have decided to take up to five (5) veterans from across the nation on a weeklong trip participating In the International Federation of Fly Fishers 50th Anniversary Festival of Fly Fishing event.
This year the event is being held in Bend, Oregon on August 11th to the 15th.
We are renting a house where the veterans will participate alongside the five (5) volunteers, with everyone participating in populating the booth at the show as well as the household chores and cooking, of course including & enjoying some of the area’s superb Fly Fishing.
We are asking for your support and assist cover the cost for the participating veterans. Your donation will be held in a separate fund by the Northern California Council of the IFFF explicitly for the veteran’s share of:
Food at the house
Registration Fees for the International Federation of Fly Fishers 50th Anniversary Festival of Fly Fishing
Non Resident Oregon fishing license
Flies and other expendable items needed
Miscellaneous items such as tips for guides donating their time and boats on the river
