Federation of Fly Fishers 43rd Annual Conclave

The Federation of Fly Fishers' 43rd Annual Conclave is officially underway in Whitefish, Montana. After a couple of days of meetings the demonstration tying, the show and seminars are underway. This year I come to the Conclave as a representative of the Northeast Council and as a member of the Board of Governors of the Fly Tying Group. More info to come about the mission and work of the FFF Fly Tying Group.

At the FFF Award Banquet I had the good fortune to sit with Don Bishop, one of the founders of, and his wife Barbara. Don and his wife were great company. For those not familiar with Ask About Fly Fishing, please take a look at it. The shows are very interesting. Since I never am in the right place at the correct time to tune into the shows, I have them automatically down loaded to my ipod via itunes.

Bob Jacklin was awarded the Lapis and Henry Hoffman was given the Buz Busik Award. Congratulations tho Bob and Henry.
