More about the Fly Fishing Film Tour….
“This annual series of well-produced short films on fly fishing around the world presents some of the most visually stunning images of fly fishing available anywhere. F3T is the original and preeminent exhibition of fly fishing cinema. 2016 marks F3T’s 10th lap around North America and this year’s lineup of films is without question the best the Tour has ever presented. From Bolivia to the Seychelles, British Columbia and Patagonia, from Saskatchewan to Zambia and Virginia to Montana, the notable characters, unique story lines and unparalleled fishing in these films will lead you on an adventure around the globe!”
Trailers for the films, which will really get you in the mood for attending the showing, can be viewed online at www.flyfilmtour.com. Seating is limited and sells out quickly, so be sure to buy your ticket early to reserve your seat. See the Calendar page for ticket ordering options.
