The International Fly Fishing Film Festival is coming to Spokane on Friday to celebrate the beginning of another fishing season and raise funds for the Spokane Falls Chapter of Trout Unlimited. The films will screen at 7 p.m. at the Bing Crosby Theater.
One of the Films “Stream Fishing Addition” is likely to hit a chord with northwest anglers who prefer to shoulder a day pack and walk away from the crowd to choice stretches on wild streams.
A segment on fly-fishing philosophy featuring British Columbia guide April Vokey in the film “Landed” is getting rave reviews. The film “Unbroken” captures the wildlife and lifestyle of a fly-fishing family whose summers for 30 years have been spent in remote Alaska, experiencing the wilds of the North.
“Mending the Line” follows a soldier who witnessed the D-Day horrors in World War II and then returns with a fly rod to the rivers of Normandy as an angler seeking to bring his life full circle.
Proceeds from a silent auction before the films help fund TU projects on the Spokane River, like redband trout migration studies and upper river boat access.
