This year’s Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T) won’t be in Denver until March. Meantime, so you’re not feeling too fish-porn parched, Trouts Fly Fishing is proud to announce the Throwback Thursday Fly Fishing Film Fest, presented by The Drake, Felt Soul Media, and our friends at F3T.
Join us Thursday, January 18 at the Oriental Theater for the films that started it all. We’ll be showcasing a collection of the best flyfishing films from the Golden Age of Fly Fishing Film (2004-2012). Everything from ticket and beer prices to the movies themselves will be reminiscent of the Early 2000s. And all proceeds from TTFFFF will be donated to Denver Trout Unlimited’s commitment to improve the South Platte River’s flows through the Denver metro area. The goal is to raise $7,500.
With some help from our amazing sponsors—Scott Fly Rods, Yeti Coolers, Ross Reels, Simms Fishing Products, Fishpond, Abel Reels, and Costa—we’ll also be auctioning off some of the latest and greatest flyfishing products. Enjoy a blast from the past to help the future of our home waters.
