In keeping with the idea of using the talent available within the Gulf Coast Council, the GCC Board of Directors has developed and sent all of our clubs a "GCC Speakers List".  


A "Speakers List" is simply a list of people available and willing to give talks on various subjects to clubs within the council to help promote the sport, make us better fisherman and more conservation minded. Examples are someone to talk about the life cycle of redfish or seatrout, warm water techniques, conservation issues, casting instruction, fly tying, leader making or knot tying.  The list could go on and on.


For those wishing to volunteer to be added to this list, please contact Mike Jackson, GCC Presdident with the following information:

1. Topic

2. Name 

3. Phone Number 

4. Email Address 

5. Fees - Speaking Fees and Travel Expenses (gas or mileage charge), if any

6. Lodging Requirements – hotel or willing to stay at club member's private residence 

7. Speaker's home club

8.  Other requirements, if any 



Currently, the names of approximately twenty (25) program speakers are listed.


The Speakers Bureau List was first emailed to the GCC Directors for distribution to their respective clubs in 2014. Updates of the List have been repeated sent to club presidents.  If your club does not have acurrent list, please contact the Council President, Michael Jackson.  


We encourage the club presidents and officers to please utilize this list to find speakers for your club meetings.  


Any FFI member in good standing within the GCC may add their name to this list by following the procedure listed above.
