Education Resources - Loaner Equipment Programs

GCC Loaner Equipment Program

To support the Federation's education mission, the Gulf Coast Council has five (5) 6-weight fly rod and reel combos for use at any Council, Charter or Affiliate Club sanctioned instructional class. These are available at no cost, other than return shipping.

The rods/reels are currently housed at the New Orleans Fly Fishers, and if your club is interested in using the Council's equipment, please contact the New Orleans Fly Fishers as far in advance as possible. Not only does this help ensure we can accommodate your request, it helps us minimize shipping costs.

 For more information contact Jimmy Fulmer         504-324-5786 or  Mike Jackson at:  mikej3865@gmail 504-377-6757

FFI Loaner Equipment Program

The FFI Loaner Equipment Program makes rods, reels, fly tying vises and tying materials available to IFFF - Charter and Affiliate Clubs throughout the nation. Gulf Coast Council Charter and Affiliate Clubs can use this equipment for educational programs that will ultimately produce the fly fishers and conservationists of the future.

The application process for the loaner program is simple. GCC clubs just need to contact the FFI Office with a specific set of dates for use of the equipment, along with approximate numbers needed. Equipment numbers will be limited, so apply early.

For more information contact the National FFI office at: 406-222-9369.
