Down The Hatch Fishing Festival

The Orvis Guide Rendezvous in Missoula, Montana is coming up in a couple weeks and the event will be capped off with the Down The Hatch Fishing Festival on Saturday, April 5th, 2014 at Wilma Park in Missoula.

The Down The Hatch Fishing Festival will feature live music, gear to check out, gratis Big Sky Brewing beer, local food, and will lead up to the Orvis Film Fest that evening at the Wilma Theatre.  Hank Patterson will MC the night, there will be a mix of films to watch, and of course some fine swag to score.

The Orvis Film Fest tickets are $10 each and proceeds will go to Montana Trout Unlimited to fund future conservation projects.  Your ticket for the night also enters you for some big ticket gear items, trips, and other surprises as well.

Tickets can be purchased on the day of the event or beforehand at Blackfoot River Outfitters and the Grizzly Hackle Fly Shop.  Getting tickets before the event might be a good idea as there were over 900 in attendance last year.

As a side note, I cashed in a few Delta SkyMiles and will be coming out for the Down The Hatch Fishing Festival and then sneak down to Craig to fish with the Headhunters crew for a few days.  Hopefully I'll see a few of you in "Zootown".
