Fly Fishing for the Masses

Share Article

Fly Fishing, a distinctively "non-tech" sport, has found the best use of technology in fishing since the "super worm."

You are likely to have heard about fly fishing. You are likely to know that this is a sport based more on knowledge than luck. You may even know that the sport of fly fishing is perfect not only for globe hopping executives, but is also widely enjoyed by retirees, fathers, professional women, and a new generation of outdoor loving teenagers.

The sport of fly fishing has a long tradition. Knowledge is passed down from those who possess it, to those who seek it. The only problem is that there only few who possess it, and too many who seek it. Every year, the Federation of Fly Fishers holds their annual Fly Fishing Show and Conclave. It is an intensive week of classes, demonstrations, workshops, and a lot of fishing. Every year access to this "super bowl" of knowledge transfer is limited, and the available class room slots fill up within hours. Leaving many out for yet another year.

Bob Wiltshire is the COO of the Federation of Fly Fishers. He wants to make the annual Conclave available to everyone with a passion for the sport. "We have been examining the problem for several years. Too many people who would like to participate and not enough instructors to meet the demand" says Bob Wiltshire the COO of the Fly Fishing Federation. We are proud to announce that this year marks the first step in solving this problem. We have partnered with YourFishingEvents.com to bring all of our training offered at this year’s Conclave to those people who have a broadband connection to the Internet. "We believe that the sport of fly fishing brings fun, health, and an important message of conservation to its participants. We would like to share those messages with more of the world" says William Egar of YourFishingEvents.com. "The sport of fly fishing benefits when it is shared with the audience trying to reach it. We simply want to make access to the tremendous resources amassed at Conclave available to everyone who seeks it."

Quote from Bob Wiltshire, COO of the Federation of Fly Fishers: "Our International Fly Fishing Show and Conclave offers enthusiasts the chance to take classes and participate in activities with the most talented and renowned fly fishermen in the world. These experts come together for five days, volunteering their time and effort to help sportsmen of all levels improve their technique and enhance their knowledge of the sport. The pros also teach the FFF’s message of conservation and its vital role in the future of fly fishing. We are excited to be spreading this experience and our message to more people than ever before by working with YourFishingEvents.com to broadcast over the Internet select events from the show to viewers everywhere."

Starting on August 11th, 2005, those who have purchased their "access pass" will be able to watch the best of the best show their secrets, methods, and techniques from any living room or office in the world that has a broadband connection. The web casts will be available after this year’s conclave too. Pat Case was a participant in last years Conclave, "I was lucky enough to attended last year, there is so much knowledge given and so little time to soak it all in. I think YourFishingEvents.com has an excellent product that will enable guys like me to get the most out of the experience."

The Fly Fishing Federation is the world’s premiere institution promoting the sport of fly fishing. YourFishingEvents.com is a web casting company formed to support and promote fishing sports around the world.

We look forward to helping the FFF share their world-class event with more fans than ever before and to spread their important message of conservation to a worldwide audience. Now fly fishing enthusiasts who would normally be unable to participate in the FFF’s event due to geographic, financial, or time-related constraints will be able to experience and enjoy the best of the five day event from their own homes."
