Veterans First Fly Fishing (VFFF)


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:

Travel expenses

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

Veterans First and Fly Fishing is What We Do
Hundreds of disabled veterans, both the physically disabled and those with PTSD, are finding peace and rehabilitation with the Veterans First Fly Fishing program. Fly fishing aficionados will be especially interested in seeing the adaptive fly-tying equipment designed for veterans who have the use of only one hand. This is an inspirational and interesting show for everyone, fishermen or not.
