USA WOMEN'S FLY FISHING TEAM

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the United States Women’s Fly Fishing Team (USWFFT) is to develop the highest quality competitive fly fishing team to represent the United States in the FIPS-Mouche worldwide competition each year.

We are dedicated to excellence in the sport of competitive fly fishing; to practice and encourage stream conservation; to understand and promote the value of our waterways; to encourage women to participate in the sport; and to encourage international friendships.

The Team will represent our country in the spirit of the Olympic tradition. Women’s Fly Fishing is now sanctioned by the Confederation Internationale de Peche Sportive (CIPS) which represents­ 50 million competitive anglers from 78 different countries worldwide.

CIPS, has formally applied to the International Olympic Committee to recognize fishing as an Olympic sport. The United States Angling Confederation (USAC) supports women’s fly fishing and believes it will advance this goal.
