Kid's Float is Right Around the Corner!

​Saturday, June 8th

Mark your calenders! FFVA will host another Kid's Float event on Saturday, June 8th.  FFVa is excited to give kids the opportunity to learn more about James River and to enjoy it's beautiful views. Kids will learn paddling skills, safety skills, and more about the many ecosystems the river supports.  

Each year we rely on volunteers to help paddle the kids down the James River, run first aid boats, carry lunch and drink coolers, etc. If this is something you are interested in, or would like more information on, contact Erica Goode (click on name).

Membership dues are upon us!  Contact your chapter's treasurer to find out how to pay them. Go to the "Chapters" page by clicking on the tool bar at the top of this page.

Dues are $20.

The Float Fishermen of Virginia (FFV) is a statewide organization of canoeists, kayakers, rafters and other boaters which started in 1969.  Together, we float the rivers, streams and waterways of Virginia and work to preserve and protect these important natural resources.

There are chapters throughout Virginia, and each has its own personality.  One chapter may paddle mostly whitewater;  another may do mostly flat water fishing.  But all pull together when it comes to protecting waterways. Subscribe to Float Fishermen email list.  This will allow you to send email to the group and receive emails from the other members.  Members use this to announce trips and pass along other information.
