A generous financial donation was presented to the Janos Fly Fishing camp by the Manitoba Fly Fishing Association in memory of Janos Bodas who was passionate about teaching youth about this great sport. Their contribution sponsored 4 youths this year.
Not only are they supporting us financially, but also technically and in-kind. Without them, we really wouldn’t be able to host this camp. We will have members of the Association coming out and teaching our participants very important fly fishing skills. We can’t wait to have you out 🙂
The Manitoba Fly Fishing Association, or MFFA, is an association of anglers dedicated to the promotion of fly fishing in Manitoba, and to the conservation of fish and fisheries. First started in 1968, it has grown to well over 100 current and past members.
The MFFA is first and foremost an association dedicated to providing its members with support and information on fly fishing, not only in Manitoba, but globally. The club regularly brings in guest speakers such as Brian Chan, Phil Rowley, and Bill Spicer to name a few. Club meetings are held weekly from January to May, and during Sept/Oct. The goal of the weekly meetings is more than just presenting updates to the members; they are focused on providing new and updated information on a wide array of topics, mostly related to fly fishing activities, but not exclusively.
The club also has occasional weekend tying presentations during the winter months, where members get together and learn some new tying tactics and/or patterns.
The MFFA also hosts 5 or 6 outings a year, pitting anglers against each other in friendly competition. We have a yearly fund raising banquet, fly fishing school, rod building workshop, family picnic, and many other activities. You may see a list of activities here.
