Macauley “Mac” Lord has been awarded the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award from the Federation of Fly Fishers (“FFF”).  Mac, who has taught fly casting in 36 countries, is the author of the L.L. Bean Fly-Casting Handbook as well as numerous articles in magazines and on the Web.  (Read his “Casting: The Elements of Style” on MidCurrent.)

“Mac inspires his students and co-instructors to be better not only at casting and catching, but he also teaches them the importance of being good stewards of the environment,” according to Chuck Willey, L.L. Bean Outdoor Discovery Schools fly fishing and wingshooting supervisor.  “He works tirelessly at being an overall ambassador of fly fishing.”
