Whether you enjoy reeling in fish or watching reels of film with fish, there’s an event just for you. Be sure to catch the 2013 International Fly Fishing Film Festival, featuring short and feature-length films produced by professional and amateur filmmakers from around the globe.
The event will be held at Highland Brewing Company on Thursday, Oct. 3, starting at 7 p.m. (Doors open at 6 p.m.) Lowdown food truck will also be on site.
From gigantic trout in New Zealand to leaping salmon in Alaska, the festival showcases what organizers call “the passion, lifestyle and culture of fly fishing.” Some of the film’s titles include Cast Alaska II by Cross Current Fishing Productions, The Last Salmon Forest by Detonation Studios and Only the River Knows by Fly Max Films.
