Default A First Annual NAFFF Conference / Meeting;

The purpose of this poll is to gage the level of interest within our membership in attending a first of its kind meeting. This would give our members the opportunity to meet one another and for us to actually go fishing together. We have members who are certified casting instructors, and some professional photographers. We have members who are full time guides as well as part time guides. Based on the results of this polling we can determine whether such a meet will ever take place. If we have an overwhelming interest then some planning will be in line.

Once we establish that it could happen the next step will be to offer a poll for venue (location) choices and we would move on from there to develop some programs for those in attendance. This entire process will be decided by polling results. There will be addition polls if they are needed based on interest.


The Poll will close out on February 13, so if you have read and are interested please fill in the blanks and leave a comment.

I would like to participate, my time card is rather filled but write a request list of areas you may need assistance and I will pitch in.

Dave,

This idea is just a twinkle in the eye as of now, I will wait to see what results are and then work from there.

Thats going to be tough to do. A few years ago someone posted on Glocktalk the same thing and people who were local got together in their areas.

I'd certainly be interested in attending. For me its all about timing, but I'm not averse to hopping on a plane and jet-setting out west if need be!

I could certainly make it happen given the necessary time to make arrangements.

It would certainly be a fun time, with lots of lies told no doubt!

And with a different destination every year (provided its successful) would be cool. To get to fish perhaps some of the best waters in the country is certainly top of my bucket list.

I like the idea of one meet, one location. I would sure try to make it. Chose an area with a large fishing area so that all in attendance can fish reasonably close and plenty of options.

This would be a lot of fun. It would be a lot of fun to do but of course date and location are key factors. If it's with in a days drive of me, count me in. I can bring the drifter too. Island Park, ID or West Yellowstone, MT would be a good venue. Lots of rivers and stillwater to chose from.

As far as breaking this down to a region by region thing members can always use the PM system here to communicate with one another and arrange meeting. This would be a one time meet (unless we chose to have a second) in an area that would offer the people in attendance something special. As I said, once we had a measure of interest we could then put a date and location up for you to consider.

Because of the scenery and diverse fishing opportunities the Rocky Mountain area is the most probable venue.

For many of the members, judging by your presence here; day to day, month to month, and year after year, it would seem a natural progression that we all might meet someday. The idea of having 2 or 3 days to meet and fish in a great location was spawned by the "Fishing With Forum Friends" thread.
