European Fly Fishing Association

EFFA Guide Programm

The European Fly Fishing Association (EFFA) has developed very ambitious certification programs for instructors and fly fishing guides, which demands a lot from the candidates in the areas of general knowledge in the field of fly fishing, didactic and methodological skills, but also in the field of casting techniques. The organization has leading experts in the field of casting in its team, who have helped to develop these programs and bring them to today's level. All programs are evaluated on a regular basis and adjustments are made at certain intervals to respond to the evolution of the various fly casting disciplines.

Absolutely unique

The EFFA Guide Program was developed in cooperation with the Hedmark University College in Elverum (Nor). Guides, as well as casting instructors, benefit from the EFFA sponsorship pool and can purchase rods, reels, lines, but also clothing at discounted rates from our partners as an advertising medium.
