Emerald Water Anglers (EWA) is excited to announce their continued support and participation in the international Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T). EWA has been a part of this celebration of fly fishing on film since the inaugural tour in 2007. Through EWA’s advocacy efforts, 2016 will be the first year that this tour will visit West Seattle. It’s coming to the Historic Admiral Theater on Wednesday, February 3rd, and you’re invited to attend! Here’s a little more about the tour:
“From Bolivia to the Seychelles, British Columbia and Patagonia, from Saskatchewan to Zambia and Virginia to Montana, the notable characters, unique storylines and unparalleled fishing in these films will lead you on an adventure around the globe! 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 fishing and habitat-related conservation groups. In 2015 we raised over $300,000 for our conservation partners and have used our voice to bring greater attention and support to groups like Trout Unlimited, Wild Steelhead Coalition, Bonefish Tarpon Trust, Utah Stream Access Coalition, Stop Pebble Mine and many more.”[caption id="attachment_18771" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Film Still from “Chrome”[/caption] Dave, owner of Emerald Water Anglers, is particularly excited for “Chrome”, a film that captures the Wild Steelhead fly fishing experience in British Columbia. Patagonia Ambassadors, Kate Taylor and Dylan Tomine are featured in the film. They happen to both be Pacific NW locals (from Rockaway Beach, Oregon and Bainbridge Island, respectively) and are friends with many of the guides and staff at EWA. Special discounted tickets for the West Seattle stop on the tour are available at Emerald Water Anglers in The Junction. Stop by the store to get your ticket and check out their great selection of outdoor gear, including favorites by Patagonia, Simms, and more. Hurry though! Tickets are selling fast and anticipated to sell out before the event. If you are interested in learning more about fly fishing or taking your cast to the next level, connect with the guides at EWA! The whole staff will be on hand at the film tour to meet up, answer questions, and swap stories. You can also stop by the store in The Junction to learn more and get personal recommendations from sportswomen and men who really know their stuff. EWA is also currently booking both local and international guide trips. Whether you want to day-trip to fish the Sound or head out to Mongolia on an adventure of a lifetime – they have you covered. Check out all available trips on their website (you can find local trips here and international, out-of-state, and other Washington destination trips here).
