Tonight! International Fly Fishing Film Fest in Spokane

FISHING — The International Fly Fishing Film Festival coming to the Bing Crosby Theater TONIGHT, ( March 25) is a benefit for a boat access site on the Spokane River.

That's reason enough to go, but showgoers won't be disappointed. The films are cool.

Tickets are available in advance through the festival website or through Silver Bow Fly Shop in Spokane Valley.

Following is the list of the selected fly-fishing films edited for the two-hour show (plus 10-minute intermission) along with links for trailers to whet your appetite. 

"Sensei" (Trailer) - Official Selection, IF4™ 2015 from IF4™ on Vimeo.

In the film "Sensei" (above) Fly Fusion’s steelhead editor, April Vokey, teaches fly-fishing sensation, Hank Patterson, how to Spey cast for steelhead. Hank is a “quick study” and it’s not long before he’s passing along his newfound casting knowledge to other anglers, whether they’re looking for advice or not. Eventually, Hank transitions into the role of expert and is able to impart his sage advice to April as well. In his travels, Hank reveals many sides: the angler, the student, the teacher, the artist and the philosopher. About the only thing he doesn’t know is if his good looks get in the way of the fly-angling world taking him seriously.

Title Liquid Gold, produced by Keith Brauneis Productions

This film documents a 70-mile trek through a mountain region of California to reach several alpine lakes in pursuit of Golden Trout.  The film is produced in association California Trout and seeks to communicate a message of conservation.

No Man's Landm, produced by Hooké

The group of three from Hooke embark on a 10-day adventure throughout the Ungava region of Northern Quebec and Labrador. They fly into remote locations by helicopter in search of wild Atlantic Salmon and Arctic char. Throughout their adventures the group encounters numerous black bears, polar bears and big fish. They soon find out that these fish are hard to catch and need to change their strategy.

Bermuda Love Triangle, produced by Marc Crapo

The Bremuda Love Triangle is a narrated film in which Marc Crapo details an excursion to San Juan, Bermuda and Miami in search of Tarpon on the fly.

Recapture, produced by Shane Scherholz, Mike Percelli and John Jinishian

Recapture is one man's tribute to his father and all he loved about the sport of fly-fishing. After mourning his fathers passing, Mike Percelli realizes it is time to stop living in the past and create new memories with new friends. He returns to the waters where his father once taught him, to gain closure, and share his knowledge. From student to mentor, one man copes with his loss while he shares his passion for fly-fishing with others.

Distracted, produced by Western Waters Media

Follow the adventure of four friends as they travel in search of four cutthroat species in four states. Bonneville, Snake River Fine-spotted, Colorado, and Westslope Cutthroat trout are all on the menu. Watch as they get "distracted" by other large fish species, tricycles, and lost items. See what a run-in with a true, once-in-a-lifetime trophy cutthroat trout looks like and the fun, emotional journey that got them there.

Secrets,  produced by Fly Fusion Films

Places exist where oversized bull trout are plentiful, but where footprints from wading boots do not exist. When anglers stumble across these remote and untouched valleys, they really only have one option: take a hard drive worth of footage and never tell another living soul about the location. In the short film "Secrets", join Fly Fusion’s editors Jim McLennan and Derek Bird, and the magazine’s social media coordinator Paula Shearer, as they chopper into one of these secret locations. What they experience is beyond anything they could ever imagine.

In Search of Grande, produced by Anglers Eye Media

This film follows two anglers deep into the Baja in search of the Grande Rooster; one of the most challenging fish in all of the Sea of Cortez.  What begins as a healthy competition between two friends morphs into a partnership between three anglers who set out to accomplish the daunting task of finding the fish and documenting the adventure.
