Fly Fishing Film Tour sets two October dates in Oklahoma
Fly fishing film festivals have proven to be a growing specialty niche in the cinema world, and the granddaddy of all such touring events, the Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T), will feature two stops in Oklahoma during October.
The 2012 F3T, which has traveled to scores of cities around the country showcasing a dozen or so of the best new short films relating to fly fishing in all its fresh- and saltwater incarnations, will present programs Oct. 11 in Jenks and Oct. 15 in Tulsa, according to the tour’s website.
The Jenks show will take place at the Five Oaks Lodge, 528 East 121 St. The Tulsa show will be at the Circle Cinema, 10 S. Lewis Ave. Doors open for both shows at 7 p.m. and films start at 8 p.m. Ticket information is available on the F3T website, www.flyfilmtour.com.
A sampling of the short films on the program includes: “Reverb,” about three Chicago punk musicians who happen to share a passion for fly fishing; “The Kodiak Project,” about a group of fishermen who travel to Alaska to fish a legendary river; “Geofish: A Mayan Prophesy,” about a gonzo trek from Portland, OR, to the bottom of South America in search of extreme fishing adventures; “Fly: A Legacy,” about one man’s memories of learning to fish with his grandfather, and “Sipping Dry,” about certain fly fishers’ rarefied obsession with insect hatches and catching trout on the dry fly.
Tour officials say this year’s F3T has sported unprecedented growth, with attendance breaking the 40,000-person mark, a 38 percent increase over the previous year.
