The original and preeminent exhibition of fly fishing cinema, The F3T is a one of a kind experience. Each year fishy folk of all ages gather in big cities and small towns alike to soak up films from around the world, spin a few yarns amongst friends and dream about casts yet unmade. In our 12th annual lap around the globe, the 2018 Fly Fishing Film Tour will make its way to theaters in more than 175 cities in eight countries.

How are the films this year? Good question. They’re on fire! Wait. No… they’re… on fleek? No, that’s not it either. This year’s lineup of films… would blow the doors off a ’78 Buick. With an emphasis on the stories, characters and fisheries that help make up the vast world of fly fishing, the 2018 F3T will take you from Michigan to Honduras, from Wyoming to Greenland, from the mind of child to the heart of a musician, from the edge of your seat to the end of the earth and back!

In addition to showcasing world-class fly fishing films, The F3T is dedicated to supporting the local fly shops and conservation groups that form the backbone of our sport’s educational and environmental efforts. Discount F3T tickets are available at more than 150 fly shops across the country. A portion of those ticket sales go directly to support the conservation work that keeps our favorite fisheries intact, healthy and available for us all to enjoy. In 2017 F3T events raised over $500,000 for conservation and fishing-related charities. In addition to fundraising, we’re dedicated to providing a platform that builds awareness and support of groups like Trout Unlimited, Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, Wild Steelhead Coalition, Bonefish Tarpon Trust, Utah Stream Access Coalition, Stop Pebble Mine and many more.

With your ticket purchase you’ll be entered for a chance to win a number of raffle prizes on the day of the event. Raffle Prizes Include: Yeti Flip (Retail Value $199), Simms Backpack (Retail Value $200) and a Ross Reel – Cimarron (Retail Value $250)
