FCFF will host Jon Cave Saturday, Oct. 3 at M & M Dairy, 9:30 to 4:30.

Join next Saturday for a day with Jon Cave. Jon is a widely appreciated casting instructor, author, photographer and lecturer who’s also a USCG charter licensed guide. He has taught literally 1000s of fly casters during his 30 years as an instructor. His Jon B. Cave Fly Fishing Schools is longest established flyfishing school in the South and one of the first saltwater schools in the world.

Jon has been touted as the new Lefty Kreh because of his down-to-earth, direct instructional methods, overall fly fishing knowledge, sense of humor, and love of (and dedication to) the sport.

Jon is a casting-expert’s expert and he’s a deeply knowledgeable instructor who knows and understands fly rod action and construction from the working end. His knowledge of rods, rod building, casting, and all things fly fishing prompted Sage to ask Jon to represent them as an advisory staffer.

Jon also created the first spoon fly, the Cave Wobbler, which still is in production, although it has been seriously knocked off in the last 25 years. He’ll teach and evaluate casting, do some tying, and maybe knots and connections. He’s a versatile instructor from whom we have lots to learn.

Jon Cave Day is free for dues-paid members. Lunch and drinks will be provided.

Jon's credentials include an masters of science in Natural Resources with special concentration in fisheries. He is a member of the Team Sage Advisory Staff, Rio Advisory Staff, Team Tibor, and Umpqua;s Contract Tyer Program.

Jon also is a consultant for several fly-fishing related products including Heritage Kayaks. His articles, casting tips, and photographs are regularly featured in fly fishing publications and he has written two books: . Fly-Fishing Odyssey and The Pursuit of Great Gamefish. A third has just been accepted for print.

In 1998, the FFF (Federation of Fly Fishers) honored him with the prestigious Silver King Award for his contributions to saltwater flyfishing. He currently holds a seat on the Advisory Council for the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission.
