In 2021, we lost a dear friend and Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions cofounder, Charlie Parr. Since LFFE's first summer, Charlie had dreamed of starting a nonprofit to raise money for scholarships and conservation projects. When we lost Charlie so unexpectedly, we knew we had to honor his legacy. Within a year, LFFCF and our cornerstone Charlie Parr Memorial Scholarship and Grant became a reality. 

The LFFCF team believes that the summer camp experience is life-changing. We've witnessed it over a decade of running trips for teens and we -every one of us- had our lives changed by summer camp growing up.

We think that experience should be available to every teenager.

We also recognize that the wild places where these memories are made aren't without needs. We've seen the impact that small, local initiatives can have on access and the quality and health of a fishery.   

Recognizing this need and opportunity, LFFCF was founded in 2022 to open opportunities for teens to learn to fly fish and to help protect the wild places where we fish.

Our Goals

Introduce 200+ young people to fly fishing by 2028

Increase donations 15% year-over-year to increase our impact

Fund projects that have meaningful, measurable impacts on fisheries
