It's Time for The Federation of Fly Fishers Conclave

By Chad Love

A while back FlyTalk blogger Kirk Deeter wrote a blog post about the Federation of Fly Fishers and its use of the somewhat archaic and parochial term "conclave" to describe its annual gatherings. For some, the term conjures up images of reclusive, self-flagellating religious orders perched high on mountaintop monasteries.

But if you live in the eight-state region of the Federation of Fly Fishers Southern Council, better get those Friar Tuck robes dry-cleaned, grab your Latin copy of "The Compleat Angler" and start practicing those Gregorian chants, because it's time for a conclave!

From this story on baxterbulletin.com:

This is the first week in October. It must be time for the Federation of Fly Fishers Southern Council Conclave. This is the Southern Council's major show and fundraiser of the year. The Federation of Fly Fishers is a tax-exempt ˜ 501(c)(3) ˜ organization dedicated to the betterment of the sport of fly-fishing through conservation and education.

The conclave is a gathering of fly-fishers from throughout the region. It is a great place to swap information, see old friends and make new ones. This is a great, low-cost way to entertain the family and learn a lot in the process. A one-day pass is only $5, and a one-day family pass is $10.

Any fishing monks (Shaolin or otherwise) planning to attend?
