fly fishing film tour 2011

Wilmette Theater
The Fly Fishing Film Tour made its way through the Chicago-land area for the first time ever on Tuesday night. The Wilmette Theater was at a near capacity crowd and I was fortunate enough to be part of this inaugural event. For those who are unfamiliar with the tour, it is basically a compilation of many short fishing films combined into a two full hours. This year’s tour represents many fine film makers and follows the stories of many great anglers. Given the variety of films, there is something here for anglers from all walks of life. Musky, trout, shark, billfish, redfish, permit, bass, and more all have their moment in the spotlight.

The best of the best for me was “The Waters Of Greenstone “ a short film following two US anglers on the trip of a life time to New Zealand. It is a comical story of the trials and tribulations they ran into while chasing trout in a different country. Here’s the trailer-

  7. We share a favorite - that New Zealand trip video was killer. It moves NZ way up on high on the bucket list.
