Welcome to the Gulf Coast Council
Fly Fishers International
On April 1st, 2017 the International Federation of Fly Fishers
changed names to the Fly Fishers International. For a full
explination for this change please read the article at:            
In the coming weeks, the GCC will change the artwork and logos on this site to reflect these changes.

The Gulf Coast Council - Fly Fishers International (GCC-FFI), is a  regional entity of the FFI, representing clubs and members in Louisiana, Mississippi, lower Alabama and northwestern Florida.

Please use the page links listed on the left this site and you will see over 600 photos that will tell you more of who we are, a bit of what we do, and the fish that we catch using long rods, feathers and fur. You'll quickly notice that these photographs show a large variety of habitats, along with over 50 species of the fresh and saltwater fish that we regulary take with flies!

Actually, these pictures represent a only a very small part of those individuals in the fourteen (14) clubs across the Gulf Coast Council. The FFI has been the "Voice of Fly Fishing though Education and Conservation".  We hope that you'll want to join with us!

Our home page is designed to be constantly changing with the updated posting of upcoming events and articles designed to be of value to all fly fishers, and especially to our members in the Fly Fishers International. Therefore, this site should remain interesting each time you visit. 

Click on the "About Us" page to learn more about who we are and our mission; the Gulf Streamer brings you our newsletters - one of the best in the country; our "Calendar" page shows what's happening around the Council and beyond; "Clubs" gives a list of GCC Charter and Affiliated Clubs (and links to their websites & Facebook Pages); and the other links convey timely and positive information about how we accomplish our mission of supporting fly fishing in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and western Florida.  

We believe that all these links are also worth your time to view, if only for the marvelous photographs.  Most likey you will see a least a few folks that you already know!

29th Annual North Toledo Bend Rendezvous  

 Co-Sponsored by the Gulf Coast and Texas Councils - FFI

Nov. 3 - 5th, 2017 

Held each year in the first weekend of November at the North Toledo Bend State Park near Zwolle, LA, this will be the 29th Rendezvous (since 1989) of this gathering of fly tyers representing Federation clubs from Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Mississippi and beyond. 

With no planned activities, but plenty of fly tying, food, fly casting instruction and fly fishing, and with only a minimal fee to cover lodging and meals, the North Toledo Bend Rendezvous remains one of the top tying events held each year in the U.S.A.  See more at:

If you have never attended the North Toledo Bend Rendezvous or haven't been in a while, your are hereby invited to attend... Hey, we haven't gathered on the shores of Toledo Bend and thrown this party for 29 years for nothing!!!

Rendezvous is your chance to sit down and tie flies with some of the very best tyers in the Deep South! No matter if you are a beginner to tying or a master of the craft, you will learn a lot (or at least have fun tying with your friends &/or teaching others). We always have a great time!

This kid friendly, event is appropriate for your whole family... So bring your "significant other", as well as your kids/grandkids! If you attend just once, you'll want to come back each year!

See you there!
