The Federation of Fly Fishers (http://www.fedflyfishers.org/) has recently set up the Fly Tying Group. Information on the group is available at http://www.davidlnelson.md/FFF_FlyTyingGroup/. Membership information is available at http://www.davidlnelson.md/FFF_FlyTyingGroup/Membership.htm. At the Federation's Annual Conclave in Whitefish, MT, we recently had our first meeting with the newly-elected Board of Governors.
Generally speaking, the FTG's mission is to bring leadership to and improve the quality of demonstration tying at the Conclave, international, national and club levels. There is the "Tying as Teacher Initiative," which focuses on providing resources and education on how to be an effective demonstrator and teacher of the art and science of fly tying. Also, the FTG will be looking at framing and fly plate production and archiving. As the TFG is an evolving group still in its youth,, more will be unfolding and taking shape as time moves forward. Look for future information.
