From flip-phone poon footage to an international filmmaking movement that’s spurred show-touring and award-winning cinematography, flyfishing films have made awesome strides in the last decade. So let’s make a party.
This summer in Orlando, join us for The Drake’s 10th Anniversary Video Awards, where we pay tribute to upcoming and veteran filmmakers by honoring the year’s best flyfishing videos.
The pre-awards cocktail bash, with food, music, and open bar (with drink tickets), takes place poolside from 7-8 p.m. at the Rosen Plaza Hotel. (Not to be confused with the Rosen Centre Hotel, where our party has been held the past two years.) At 8 p.m. the party moves inside with the commencement of the awards show.
