2023 Annual Rendezvous

February 11 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm


First Coast Fly Fishers
2023 Annual FCFF Rendezvous
Featuring 8- & 12-Weight Distance Casting Champ David Olson

 Rendezvous with the First Coast Fly Fishers on Saturday, Feb. 11, 2023, 9 a.m.- 3:30, for a full day of fly-fishing education, good times, and great company at Crossroads Church, 10005 Gate Parkway, Jacksonville.

This year we welcome Master Fly Casting Instructor and Distance Casting Champ David Olson, of Vero Beach. 



David Olson of Vero is a respected FFI Master Instructor who is widely admired for his distance casting prowess and his seeming limitless knowledge of casting instruction.  He’s also a many-time winner of both 8- and 12-weight distance casting shootouts and a lifetime saltwater fly fisher.  Dave excels at both single- and double-handed casting instruction, so if you’re a long-long rod caster, two-hander, or single-spey fly caster, come listen and learn. We’ll learn distance casts, accuracy, roll casts and more. Dick Michaelson, Adam Klohr, and Master Instructor David Lambert will help David with instruction – so there’ll be plenty of instructors and instruction for everyone.

New venue this year – Crossroads Church off Gate Parkway, 10005 Gate Parkway N Jacksonville, FL 32246.  The church has a great banquet facility with plenty of nicely manicured grass for casting.

Come hungry. We’ll have coffee and donuts on site at 9 a.m. Just after noon, we’ll have a great meal from Bono’s. Later, we’ll start the Raffle. Lots of great prizes, capped by a ‘special’ Grand Prize drawing. The day will wrap up around 3:30 or 4 p.m.

Member-Exclusive Event and Sign-Up
The FCFF Annual Rendezvous is a members-only event. We’ll need a final head count for catering by Feb 5. Tickets are $40 per for dues-paid members only.
