As reported on last week on anglingtrade.com, the American Fly Fishing Trade Association has moved its headquarters from the Denver area to Bozeman, Montana. While that’s largely a move of convenience (AFFTA president Ben Bulis and chairman Jim Klug are from that area), we wonder if that doesn’t also seal the case for Bozeman being the unofficial fly fishing capital of America…
As part of the move, AFFTA also hired Sarah Grigg, who will replace Mischa Jones and work as office manager alongside Bulis. Sarah’s involvement with the fly fishing industry began in 2003, when she served as an intern for the Henry’s Fork Foundation in Idaho. Since then, she has worked in conservation and communication for numerous groups in the Greater Yellowstone, forging collaborative relationships with anglers and other sportsmen.
The new AFFTA office and mailing address is:
321 E. Main Street, Suite #300
Bozeman, MT 59715
Stay tuned for another major announcement concerning AFFTA within the next few days.
