Who We Are

International Women Fly Fishers (IWFF) is the first international women’s fly fishing organization. It was founded in 1996 by Fanny Krieger and members of the Golden West Fly Fishers of San Francisco, CA. Our goal is to connect women interested in fly fishing with each other and all aspects of the sport. Further, we encourage our members to maintain a dialogue with the fly fishing industry that promotes the recognition of women in the sport.

Membership in the IWFF includes our quarterly Newsletter that is packed with information, stories, poems, drawings, photographs and special logo merchandise and other offerings for our members. Our members only site is a growing platform to connect and engage with fellow members on a variety of fishing related subjects from fly tying, to casting, to recommendations for a great guide for your next trip. In addition, you will have the opportunity to meet women from around the world at our biennial Festivals, and annual regional Rendezvous.  At these events you will have the opportunity meet and network with incredible women who share our passion for fly fishing; learn to fish new waters; improve your skills through seminars and clinics; hear famous fly fishers speak on their favorite topics; learn to tie flies and more.

Our Mission

To support women fly fishers and to promote participation in the sport of fly fishing through education, environmental awareness and social networking.
