Fly Fishing Film Tour Update

The Blue Roycster Cult and I head out last Thursday to Bozeman, Montana to hit the Fly Fishing Film Tour.  We ventured north to Island Park Idaho and then cruised up past Ennis, MT.  We then turned on HWY 84 at Norris and cruised right to Bozeman.  It was a great trip because I was able to soak in some Sage Advice from Royce and see some good wildlife.

We arrived at the Emerson Center and saw the fellas getting ready.  Mac Rowdy was in full effect with his red beard occupying most of the space on his glowing dome.

As for the films, it started a bit slow, but once Metalhead hit the big screen, it was on!  That film is DOPE!  I also really liked Heads or Tails and High in the Lowlands.

  • Metalhead was just awesome footage of the fellas getting lost and rowdy somewhere in Northern Canada, hunting steelhead.
  • Heads of Tails was Rad!  It showcased some awesome footage of Permit fishing in Western Australia.  I didn’t even know they were there.  And, I am not talking about sight casting to one Permit (although that option exists), but these blokes were finding huge schools of them.  Pretty Unreal!
  • High in the Lowlands showed the remote parts of the very diverse Everglades and these boys were targeting monster Snook!  Those fish look awesome.
  • I will also give props to Once in a Blue Moon which had some serious trout fishing in New Zealand.

I ain’t gonna lie.  I thought the films last year were all pretty awesome, each one catching my attention.  This year there definitely were some blow out films, but also some slower ones.  It didn’t seem that way last year.

Overall, it was a fantastic time and the Webeye Media group (Rowdy, Thad, and the other fellas) did an outstanding job of making it a great time.

Check out some pics and vids below:

Get out and catch a show.  I promise you won’t be disappointed.

    I’ve got two tickets in hand and I’m patiently waiting for Feb. 20th when the film tour finally (finally) makes its way to Boise Idaho. Sounds like a great time! You guys took quite a journey to your theater. I have a 10 minute drive to get to mine, but I’m pretty sure I’m up to the adventure.
    Thank You for the teaser entry ~
