 The Gulf Coast Council Welcomes The Kisatchie Fly Fishers as our Newest Affiliated Club!

Starting late this summer, members of the Kisatchie Fly Fishers, had been in communication with the FFI National Office and the Gulf Coast Council.  These communications resulted in the FFI National approving the addition of the Kisatchie Fly Fishers as an Affiliate club of the Gulf Coast Council. This move was soon followed by a number of the Kisatchie Fly Fishers' Federators participating in our GCC Fly Fair in Ocean Springs, MS. 

We in the GCC welcome the Kisatchie Fly Fishers into our Council and look forward to many, many years of great times ahead!
