Patrick H. Berry was named the President & CEO of Fly Fishers International in May of 2019.  NKFF is very pleased to announce that he will be the keynote speaker for our January 7th monthly meeting.  Jen Ripple, member of the Board of Directors with FFI will introduce Patrick Berry.

Berry brings over 27 years of experience within the environmental conservation field, having come to FFI from the Vermont Community Foundation where he served as vice president of philanthropy. A former commissioner of the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, Berry is recognized as a visionary conservationist and is widely respected by his peers.

Patrick is an expert fly fisher who began his career as a professional fly fishing guide and commercial fly tier. He lives in Vermont with his wife and two teenage sons. Their family also includes two English springer spaniels, Keller and Griffin, that Berry trains for hunting and field trials, and one English cocker spaniel, Fergus, who specializes as a bird hunting dog. Berry plays guitar and banjo in a local band. He is accomplished painter, and the brook trout he painted is featured on one of Vermont’s conservation plates.

Fly Fishers International has been an organized voice for fly fishers around the world since 1964. They represent all aspect of fly fishing from the art of fly tying and casting, to protection of the natural systems that support healthy fisheries and their habitats so essential to the sport. Their mission is to preserve and enhance fly fishing opportunities around the world.  They strive to ensure the legacy of fly fishing for all fish in all waters continues by focusing on conservation, education, and a sense of community. These three pillars collectively guide FFI’s vision for the future of fly fishing — a future in which opportunities to fly fish prime waters continues; fish thrive in healthy, protected habitats; in which learning never stops; and the true value of camaraderie prevails.

  1. I have looked at our website and cannot find any fly recommendations for Brookville tailwaters. Am I missing it? We could have a forum where we post where we are catching fish currently and what flys are effective for the different waters we are all visiting.

    • Stan, we do have a members only forum on the website. We promoted it for months but nobody uses it. The big idea behind the forum was for people to share the info that you’re talking about, but we can’t make people participate.

      I got skunked today at Brookville fishing cream and black mops, black zebra midges and yarn bugs. Saturday they were hitting cream colored mop flies.
