The 2012 flyfishing film season is officially official—with the International Fly Fishing Film Festival debut in Denver last weekend and the Drake sponsored Fly Fishing Film Tour about to launch later this month in Ventura, CA. (Two completely separate entities, in case you were wondering.) Get your tickets and get in on the fresh goods. Meantime, the crew at Faceless Fly Fishing is running a 20 favorite vids recap, here. And check out a couple of eye candy edits from Yukon Goes Fishing below, including Sleep, Dreams, and Birthday Donuts….
From Yukon Goes Fishing: It’s December in Montana and winter hitting us hard…..LIES. It was over 40 F this past weekend, so Bucko, Blakely, and Matt Breuer (of Ponoi River Co.) traveled over to the Mo to harass some of its trouts. We stopped by Headhunters Fly Shop in the morning and then hit the water. It was a relaxing day on the water, for sure. Several good trout came to hand. It was Blakely’s birthday, so we stopped and got a Birthday Donut from the Donut Hole in Helena.
Music: The Roots “Sleep”
(And don’t miss guest cameos from Yukon Cornelius and Rudolph in Silver and Gold.)
