THE F3T - Project Rainbow

The Black Canyon of the Gunnison River has for a long time been on my bucket list.  This trailer for one of the films in the upcoming Fly Fishing Film Tour is a good reminder that this needs to happen.

Film description...

While many people have heard of the Gunnison River that flows through the Black Canyon and Gunnison Gorge, not many people have heard the story of the Gunnison River Rainbow. The story of how, following the accidental introduction of whirling disease in 1993, these rainbows went from nearly 10,000 fish in a 2-mile stretch of river to only 86 fish a decade later. However, in recent years these fish have started to make a strong comeback. The resurgence of the Gunnison River Rainbow serves as a beacon of hope for other fisheries around North America that are feeling the impact of whirling disease.

Visit the Fly Fishing Film Tour website for more information, tour schedule and don't delay on getting tickets for your local show as they typically sell out.
