Fun With The F3T Press Kit

The Fly Fishing Film Tour press kit arrived the other day and I have spent the past couple evenings watching and re-watching a few of the submissions on the preview disc.

I have also been enjoying (in moderation of course) the bottle of Breckenridge Bourbon Whiskey that was carefully wrapped up in the box as well.  Winter is the time for the bourbon sipping and this bottle arrived just as we are in the middle of a South Carolina cold snap.  Perfect timing.

All of the films included on the preview disk are really excellent but I especially like ReVerb: A Punk Rock Love Story, Sipping Dry, Doc Of The Drakes, and The Kodiak Project.  These films tell interesting stories and are more than just fish porn and a bumpy back beat.  There are a few submissions missing from the preview disk and I look forward to checking those out at the show itself.

A few interesting facts from the F3T press release are that the tour will drop into 125 cities across the United States and Canada this year and will give away over $350,000 in prizes to show goers.  The tour has great sponsors this year which include Costa, Patagonia, Sage, Hardy Reels, Yeti Coolers, and Scientific Anglers to name a few.  The Fly Fishing Film Tour will also be giving over $30,000 back to the filmmakers which helps keep this cycle of stellar films going into the next year.

Nearly all the shows sell out in advance so check the schedule on the Fly Fishing Film Tour website and purchase your tickets online or visit your local fly shop for discounted tickets there.

I am really excited about the Fly Fishing Film Tour this year and I am looking forward to attending four F3T stops which include Charleston, South Carolina for two shows, Asheville, North Carolina, and Columbus, Ohio.  Look for a T.F.M. booth at these shows and also a mention in the F3T Stonefly magazine as well.
