The coronavirus is invisible and indifferent to individuals. It only becomes apparent when it hits us. Now we recognize the consequences on health, families and our daily routine and wellbeing and social distancing to control the virus often means we can’t fish with friends, or in some states fish at all.
Fly Fishers International aims to fill that fishless void with a new program of live, online meetings for members worldwide. The programs on Zoom cover the world of fly fishing from fly tying to conservation to destinations around the world.
Next week on Tuesday May 26 join Molly Semenik for another episode of her Fly Casting Series. Wednesday May 27, FFI ambassador Jeff Currier will present the 4th episode of “Currier’s Global Fish Quest”, this episode in Canada. Thursday May 28, Richard Williams will interview fisheries ecologist Dave Peterson in another installment of the FFI Conservation Conversation.
For a schedule of programs, go to the Fly Fishers International Website. All programs begin at 8 p.m. Eastern, 5 Pacific.
Past programs are archived there as well. Be sure to watch the first presentation in the series where FFI President Patrick Berry lays out a vision for the online events and a larger vision for the organization itself.
Be careful and be well on the water and stay in touch with FFI online.
