Project Story: America’s Favorite Flies – For Better Fisheries

“America’s Favorite Flies” (AFF) is a nationwide collaborative project coordinated by John Bryan and Rob Carter, with David Watterworth as Chief Instigator, and John Henley as Chief Photographer. The centerpiece of the project is a landmark book self-published in 2017. This unique book is a collaborative donation of flies, photos, and stories from over 245 different individuals. “America’s Favorite Flies” is a special celebration of our nation’s boundless opportunities to fly fish. What better way to paint the picture of appreciation and concern for our native waters than to compile hundreds of fishing stories? Financial proceeds from all book and product sales are gifted to the James River Association and the Native Fish Society. Both nonprofits work to support healthy fisheries nationwide.
