Fly casting champion Tim Rajeff is coming to North Idaho this weekend and he’s just one part of the celebrity action during the two-day Sandpoint Fly Fishing Film Festival.

The event features the eight films edited for the Fly Fishing Film Tour to be shown at the Panada Theater on Friday night followed by the four films in the International Fly Fishing Film Festival on Saturday night.

Doors open both nights at 6 followed by the films at 7. Tickets are $12 in advance at Big R or Eichardt’s in Sandpoint, or $15 at the door.

“We have tons of prizes, including guided steelheading trips and fishing trips on the Kootenai, Missouri and Bitterroot rivers,” said Calvin Fuller of Big R Fly Shop.

“It was a lot of fun to have both film festivals last year, so we’re doing it again.”

On Saturday, Rajeff, an expert affiliated with fly rod and line companies, will help anglers with casting demos 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at a 40-foot by 100-foot casting pool in the Big R parking lot.

A casting competition for distance and accuracy with prizes is set for all levels of casters at 2 p.m.

Info: 208-610-4151, panhandletu.org.
