Did “corona” mess up your plans to attend the Fly Fishing Film Tour this year?  It did mine and I’m glad to see that the F3T crew has regrouped and planned for a virtual event that will kick off on Thursday, August 27, 2020, and you can choose to attend either the national tour show or one of the many regional events which will benefit local conservation causes.

From the F3T presser…  “Earlier this spring, the F3T abruptly hit pause on our 2020 Fly Fishing Film Tour to ensure public safety and adhere to state guidelines surrounding the pandemic. We had hoped to restart the tour this fall—however, due to these unprecedented times, we have chosen to launch a virtual event to conclude the 2020 Tour. This virtual event will be grounded in supporting our promoters, grassroots fly shops, conservation, and non-profit partners across the country. 

After a lot of hard work, planning, and evaluating our options, we will offer the film online while still recognizing our affiliate promoters by hosting both regionalized virtual events and a national virtual event. We are confident this is the best way to help uplift our partners and continue to share the 2020 film with an excited audience. 

We hope you can join us on August 27th at 7:00 PM (EST) for this special event.

The event will feel like any other of our tour showings. Starting with walk-in music and inspiring images from the film, the audience will have the opportunity to watch an event that will feel like a live show. There will be special guests and opportunities to support our conservation and non-profit partners with dozens of virtual donations and raffle options.

The event will have two ticket categories. You can choose to support a national tour show or an independently promoted event. The national events will have sponsor raffles with prizing from our partners: Simms Fishing Products, Yeti Coolers, Costa Sunglasses, Ross Reels, Scientific Anglers, Thomas, and Thomas Fly Rods, Oskar Blues Brewing Company, and Yellow Dog Fly Fishing Adventures. Independently promoted affiliate shows will also host raffles and sell tickets to benefit their local cause.”

Take a few minutes to check out the F3T film trailers if you haven’t already and then buy your ticket for one of the many events planned.  Once your ticket is purchased, you’ll be able to watch the films for one week.
