Rendezvous at Deep Creek
Sage Flyrod Ambassador and fly casting great Jon Cave

Meeting Location and Time

February 3rd - 9:00 - 4:30

Weed’s Deep Creek Fish Camp


Leading the education day is Sage Flyrod Ambassador and fly casting great Jon Cave. We’ll learn new casts, distance casts, roll casts and more, but also, where to use these casts, how to look for and find fish, rigging, leaders and knots. Jon’s books on casting and fly fishing travel are perennial best sellers and his are the longest continuous running saltwater fly fishing schools in the world.


Weed’s Deep Creek Fish Camp is a little bit of old Florida nestled on several acres of salt marsh just west of Pine Island and within sight of the Intracoastal. The facility and grounds are designed by gold course design great Bobby Weed and his wife, Leslie. It has a large en- closed log building with big kitchens and dining both inside and out. Outside there’s plenty of room for casting and smaller clinics. Helping Jon with the instruction will be David Lambert, Dick Michaelson and Gavin Glover – so there will be plenty of instructors for everyone. An extra treat – former FCFF president and life member Jimmy Ricks will provide the catering for the event. Jimmy has moved to Apalachicola where he is the official caterer for Yamaha Motors and Ranger Boats. He caters for groups of 1000s, literally, and for presidents and staff of some of the biggest names in the fishing industry. Jimmy promises a really special meal for his fellow FCFFers – fresh fried fish, his specialty cheese grits, and much more.

Come hungry. We’ll have coffee and donuts on site at 9 a.m. We’ll do some casting and learn- ing until 2 p.m. The catered meal, giveaways, raffles and silent auction begins at 2:30. This year we’ve got rods, reels, lines and much more useful stuff for the fly fisher. The day will wrap up around 4:30 in the afternoon.

Tickets $25 per person. Children 18 and under $10.
