FISHING — Incredible fishing sequences and photography was so common in Tuesday night's Fly Fishing Film Tour at the Bing Crosby Theater — we came to expect nothing less.  Here are my top picks in several categories:

Best action:  Blackwater Devil's Gold, fishing in Bolivia for golden dorado, one of the wildest of freshwater fish (see short trailer above, or 7-minute clip here).

Best story: Hit 'em again Doc, featuring Dr. Robert Franklin, 85, an angler with Parkinson's, and his guide.

Best fishing sequence:  Fall Run, a Pacific Northwest steelheading film with an “over the top” action footage of landing a fish in a canyon where the sun don't shine.

Best line: The intriguing thing about steelheading is that … you have to be cool with not catching them.

Sandpoint nets Fly Fishing Film Tour Friday

Portions of 11 films are compiled into a 2-hour show set for April 20 starting at 7 p.m. at the Panida Theater in Sandpoint.

Fly fishing films rise to expectations

ANGLING — The annual Fly Fishing Film Tour presented last night to a nearly full house at the Bing Crosby Theater soared beyond expectations. The films were beautifully photographed and brilliantly edited, capturing moods ranging from kick-ass action to admiration and emotion.

The audience, which I would describe as severely male, relished fishing for tarpon, bonefish, huge arctic char and a day of bull-trout fishing with Beckie Clarke (left) a Fernie, British Columbia, guide who led a filmmaker on a hike into a stretch of stream in the Elk River Valley.

The crowd last night gave rousing appreciation for the film Doc of the Drakes (see clip above) and the persistence of a guide and a man with Parkinson's disease determined to hook a trout in the peak of brown drake hatch on Idaho's Silver Creek.

Click here for details about the show and all the films.

Click here for a film clip and my profile of a Missouri River guide who idled his rod to photograph other guides relishing the dry fly action near Craig, Mont.  The film generated loud applause at the Bing.

The Fly Fishing Film Tour will be returning to the Inland Northwest on April 20 in Sandpoint.

FISHING — The annual Fly Fishing Film Tour has been scheduled for 7 p.m. Feb. 8 at the Bing Crosby Theater in Spokane. 

The show will be returning to the Inland Northwest on April 20 in Sandpoint.

The tour has been a full-house attraction in recent years in Spokane, featuring an evening of edited versions of about eight fishing flicks. More coming as details are released.

Let’s get it straight about fishing

OUTDOOR WISDOM — After attending last night's Fly Fishing Film Tour at the Bing — a thoroughly entertaining evening of film that overshadowed the unpolished ramblings of the tour hosts — I left knowing one thing for sure:

The most common misconception about fishing is that it's all about catching fish. 

Fly Fishing Film Tour coming Thursday to The Bing

FLY FISHING — Here's another good reason to visit one of three area fly shops this weekend:

They have discounted tickets to The Fly Fishing Film Tour, which will make its fourth annual winter run through Spokane on Thursday, bringing the pulse of rivers, saltwater flats and heart-thumping music to the Bing Crosby Theater.

Ten new films have been compiled into two hours of drama, savage strikes and humor set to start at 7 p.m.

I'll have a story detailing the event an all the stories in Sunday's Outdoors section.

But you might want to buy tickets sooner.

Tickets cost $12 in advance at Silver Bow Fly Shop in Spokane Valley, Westslope Fly Shop next to
Northern Lights Brewery and Castaway Fly Shop in Coeur d’Alene, $14 online at flyfishingfilmtour.com and $15 at the door.
