For the first time the Montana Fishing Film Festival will play in Spokane Thursday. The festival, which is in its fifth year, highlights ordinary fly fishing experiences.

“Our goal is for the viewers to walk away having been able to see themselves actually on the weekend being able to do the types of fishing trips that are highlighted in the films,” said Matt Devlin, the founder of the festival.

The festival will feature five films. It’s the third-biggest fly fishing film tour in the country, Devlin said.

The films will be played at the Garland Theater. On Thursday doors will open at 6:45 p.m. and the show will start at 7:30. Tickets cost $14. To purchase tickets: eventbrite.com/e/mt-fishing-film-fest-spokane-wa-tickets-44772572971.
