On the Fly column: Got hooked on the Fly Fishing Film Tour

We hope you join us again on Thursday, March 24, at the Wheeler Opera House for the 10th annual Fly Fishing Film Tour. This year’s highly anticipated lineup includes offerings from Captain Jack Films in the Seychelles, Two Fisted Heart’s story about catching marlin in the backyard waters of Virginia, and Beattie Outdoors’ golden dorado adventures in the Bolivian jungle. Other shorts from Travis Lowe, Castaway Films, and Conservation Media round out a terrific lineup for Thursday night.

If you’ve joined us for the “F3T” before, you already know what a fun night this is. It seems like every angler in the valley converges for the tour, and you’ll surely see a few familiar faces from your favorite river. There will be representatives from Casting for Recovery and the Roaring Fork Valley Fly Fishing Club there to encourage your involvement, raffles and giveaways from some of your favorite fly fishing products, plus plenty of industry professionals and personalities.

The F3T takes some of the most popular fly fishing films from this year and puts together “shorts,” featuring highlights of each. Considering the attention span of the average fishing guide, these shorts are just long enough to pique interests and keep the crowd entertained. This isn’t just a “guys night,” we all know how many amazing female anglers there are here in the Roaring Fork Valley.

If you plan on joining us at the Wheeler this year, you can purchase discount tickets at Taylor Creek Fly Shop in Basalt in advance, or regular priced tickets at the Wheeler and flyfilmtour.ticketfly.com. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the show gets started at 7 p.m. This is one of our favorite nights of the year, and we hope you join us in the fun.
