Conservation is one of the founding principles of the Fly Fishers International. Contributing over 50 years of conservation work, the FFI is proud to continue protecting our fisheries and angling opportunities for the future.

To support our mission the Conservation Small Grants Program was started in 2011 by Dr. Rick Williams, VP-Conservation, and Bob Tabbert, FFF Conservation Director. With the approval of the IFFF Board of Directors, the Conservation Committee began the process of setting guidelines and promoting the program to Clubs and Councils throughout the IFFF organization. The IFFF Board of Directors approved $22500 to support the program in 2011. Two rounds of grants were awarded in 2011 and will continue to be awarded two times each year until further notice. To accomplish this goal, applications will be accepted all year long.
