Founded by women to create opportunity for everyone

 

Confluence Collective exists to forge connections between enthusiastic fly fishers near and far through shared ideals of conservation, education, and community. After navigating the challenges of finding a place on the riverbank individually, we knew more could be learned and achieved together.

As a social enterprise, we’re not looking for charity; we’re looking to make fly fishing experiences more accessible to diverse populations everywhere, and support those in the industry who join us in this mission. By collaborating with Confluence Collective, you contribute to important initiatives keeping our waters clean and helping those who need a day on the water most get that opportunity. Each fly fisher exchange experience funds projects like Casting for Recovery, The Mayfly Project, and local community initiatives to further their reach and impact.
