Be Safe

Be safe.  It is a saying that all of us embrace but we don't spend enough time thinking about.  NKFF is committed to helping us all think more about fly fishing safety, but also providing the resources to assist us in learning more about the subject matter.  Please take a moment to review the resources provide on this page.  If you have questions beyond what is provided here, come to an NKFF monthly meeting and talk with our members...or send your comments and questions to us at our Contact Us email address.
