If you live in, or near Austin, Texas and fly fish, you have ZERO reason to miss this event. The FFFT is a wonderful thing in and of itself. But if you do it up Austin style, by hosting it in a legendary Austin theater, giving away free special edition hats by Howler Bros., and having the event catered by Wahoo Fish Tacos, and (hopefully) having a cash bar and prizes, you can pretty much sit back and watch the good times roll.

By the way, whoever is responsible for actually designing an Austin specific poster for the event, nice job, it totally kicks ass (i think i know who you are). It’s nice to see something lovingly designed instead of the typical photo/logo crap that the FFFT try to pass off as marketing (i still love you Drake!). Just one of the many benefits of living in Austin i guess, creative people are involved in everything (amen!).

F3T 2012 is almost here!

Now entering its sixth year, The Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T) has become the entertainment event of the year for America’s diverse fishing community. In 2011 the Film Tour screened in over 85 North American cities and provided a venue to showcase some of the country’s best independent outdoor film makers. The goal of F3T is to energize the industry and inspire film makers to create new cutting edge films that both entertain and educate outdoor enthusiasts.

Event Parking Parking provided by PlainsCapitol Bank – 9th and Congress

Free Food There will be complimentary food provided by Wahoo’s Fish Taco.

Free Hats The first 400 guests will receive a free Special Edition F3T Hat by Howler Brothers!

If by chance you have this upcoming weekend free, and you happen to like fishing, food, music and fun, might i recommend Fly Stock?

The event, this Friday-Sunday, is a fundraiser to raise money for Project Healing Waters, a great program that provides free fly-fishing classes and events to wounded and injured military personnel. The event will be near Kingsland, TX at Long’s Fish Camp, and will feature rentals by Diablo Paddlesports (they are killa!) as well as fly tying lessons and lots and lots of music. You can reach folks at twitter @flytstock to get more information.

Unfortunately i can’t be there, but i hope to hear about everyones experience and find out how it went!

Holy cow…we’ve all been given a second chance!

I for one couldn’t make it down to New Braumfels this year for the FFFT (Fly Fishing Film Tour) during Troutfest, which made me sad as all get out. But in retrospect, i realize i probably would have snuck off and fished the Guadalupe, as so many apparently did, plus it would have been a LONG (and expensive) cab ride back after enjoying the inevitable food and drinks.

SOOOOOO…I’m happy to report that it’s back in Austin, once again at the Alamo on South Lamar ($15 dollar cab ride home…i’m guessing). Great food, drinks, and awesome footage, it’s the next best thing to being there.

So get your tickets HERE, but hurry up, they are going QUICK!

So, it’s not coming to Austin this year, but the Fly Fishing Film Tour IS coming to New Braumfelds this Saturday the 19th. If you haven’t been there before you owe it to yourself to check this out. Unfortunately for me work calls and i’ll miss it this year, after catching the last two years, but i promise i will be shedding a tear…seriously, it’s that awesome.

If you don’t work that Saturday, i can’t imagine anything cooler than camping Friday night, fishing the Guadalupe early Saturday morning, hitting Troutfest, and then drinking a cool one while taking in the FFFT that evening.

Let me know how it was…this might be the only time in the last two years that i’m actually sad i have a job.

GO ENJOY IT Y’ALL! AND REPORT BACK!
