what

WE

do

 FIPS Mouche helps to arrange World and Regional Flyfishing Championships. World Championships are held each year, and FIPS Mouche demonstrates its commitment to Conservation by organizing a prestigious Conservation Symposium in conjunction with each. Since 1996 European Regional Flyfishing Championships are being held annually and we intend to introduce further Regional Championships in the future. In August 1998, we held our first World Youth Flyfishing Festival, combining a Flyfishing Championship and a conservation orientated educational program and since that time Youth events are being held annually. From 2014 on FIPS-Mouche supports organization of the Masters Championships.
