The Fly Fishing Film Tour, better known as F3T, will be coming to a Colorado town near you. The 2012 event sponsored by Costa among many other industry giants, will kickoff this weekend in Denver. The film showcase will be held at the Oriental Theater on Jan. 28 with two showings, one at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Tickets for the event in Denver are available online or at Trout's Fly Shop. Get you tickets before the events sells out. It is a fun event with lots of enthusiasm in the air, great giveaways from local and national companies and great UpSlope beer.
Can't make it to Denver? Well, F3T will be touring across the country for the next five months, but the event features a few more stops in Colorado. The event will be in Colorado Springs Feb. 17, then on Feb. 29, Fort Collins will be a stop. Fort Collins will again be the hot spot on March 1. You guys in the mountains will get a chance to be a part of the fun on March 28 at Vail/Edwards. On March 30, the tour will stop in Grand Junction and then on to Boulder on Apr. 12.
The fun doesn't stop there, nor do the great experiences. A special show to help Project Healing Waters has been added to the program. It will be on April 14 at the Wildlife Experience in Denver. This showing will be on an IMAX screen and could add to the experience while helping Project Healing Waters.
"Our goal in doing this tour is to share our passion and support the sport we love," said F3Tproducer Chris Keig. “This year our tour will donate more than $30,000 to filmmakers. We’ll work in conjunction with over 175 local businesses and 150 conservation groups, and we’ll giveaway more than $350,000 in prizes to fans who come to our shows."
This year's lineup of films will feature on-the-water action from the U.S. including Montana, Florida, Idaho and the Gulf. Other films feature destinations such as Bahamas, Belize, New Zealand and familiar spots like Alaska and Canada.
Films include: "Reverb" by Third Year Fly Fisher, "Sipping Dry" by Sharptail Media, "Fly a Legacy" by Ronnie B Goodwin, "Doc Of The Drakes" by Bryan Huskey, "Hatch" by Gin Clear Media, "Clearly B.C.-Fall Bullies" by Todd Moen,
