The Magic City Fly Fishers chapter of Trout Unlimited was officially organized on January 9, 1990 in Billings, Montana. It is one of thirteen Trout Unlimited chapters in Montana, serving south central and southeastern Montana, and currently has over 600 members. MCFF is a non-profit organization, governed by the Chapter By Laws that were approved when it was first organized. A Board of Directors establishes the policies of the Chapter and oversees the conduct of business and activities on behalf of the members. MCFF holds monthly membership meetings, September though June, with each meeting featuring a guest program. MCFF also publishes a monthly newsletter, The Hackle Bender, and maintains this web site for the purpose of communicating with our members and friends. The Chapter charges a modest membership fee to cover the costs of programs, newsletters and other administrative expenses. In addition to sponsoring youth fly tying classes and other education activities for several years, MCFF has evolved to become much more active in area conservation and access issues, as well. Consistent with its mission, in addition to monthly members meetings, MCFF conducts numerous volunteer activities and events throughout the year.
