The second Kuala Lumpur Malaysia International Fly Fishing Festival (MIFFF) is confirmed for October 31 – November 3, 2018. The final two days, November 2–3 (Friday & Saturday) being open public days.
Casting Instructor Certification Program (CICP) is expected to be held on the first three days from October 31 to November 3. For information about the CICP you may contact us, contact the event organiser Fly fishing Association of Selangor (FFAS), or go to the webpage of Fly Fishers International (FFI).
The previous and first international fly fishing Malaysia event was way back in 2012
Something exciting to look forward to immediately after the event is the first International Royal Belum Fly Fishing Challenge. Royal Belum is renown for giant snakehead, giant guorami and sebarau (hampala barb) fishing. This should be very interesting. Places are limited so if you want to be part of the action, do be ready for registration as there appears to be plenty of buzz even at this early stage. The date is set for 5–7 November 2018.
The 2018 IFFF event is expected to see quite a few international participation. More than 20 international visitors consisting of candidates and examiners are expected here just for the CICP testing itself.
Some of the international examiners confirmed are from America, United Kingdom, Europe and Australia.
Test candidates will be mainly made out of fly fishers from China, Taiwan, Macau, Thailand, Indonesia and some local Malaysians.
Events and activities are still in the planning stages and could consist of:
- Fly fishing and fly casting workshop
- Fly tying clinics
- Fun competitions with attractive prizes
- Vendor booths
- Demonstrations and clinics
- Fly fishing films
