More from the FFF Conclave

The biggest factor in Fly Fishing is catching a fish.  Fly Fishing can be a 365 day hobby or obsession whichever you choose!!  You can fish, tie flies, work on getting better with your casting, and even build your own rods.  Who could ask for anything more out in the fresh air, and having one idea that leads you to the understanding of excellence.

Some are good enough to eat.  It has been a great afternoon and we still have the evening to go.  Good food and good company, who could want anything better!!

The Best thing about a FFF Conclave are the people

Federation Of Flyfishers (FFF) people just like you and me that love to fly fish.  We put together gatherings much like the gatherings of the Clans in Scotland and Ireland.
Nancy and Lee Davis of Snake River Outfitters

There are lots of toys to buy at this gathering.

I always love the Silent Auctions ... and steak, Martini, and Cohiba for the evening.
