Casper’s Iris Theatre to Host Fly Fishing Film Tour, April 9th
The Iris Theatre will be host to the 2014 Fly Fishing Film Tour coming to Casper on Wednesday, April 9 starting at 7:15 p.m.
The Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T) is a compilation of fly fishing films seen by more than 50,000 anglers in 160 cities. This year’s lineup will feature greater diversity in both locations and fish species than ever before.
Given the world class fishing right here in the Casper area, local audiences will have much to talk about.
“This is an outstanding event for the fly fishing community. Since Casper is such a top-notch fishing destination, we were surprised that this wasn’t available here yet, so it’s great to be able to bring this to the fishing community. This is the fourth year we’ve had the show, and it gets bigger and bigger every year,” Andy Houck, General Manager of the Iris Theatre.
The Iris doors will open at 6:00 p.m. for a Beer Garden and Trade Show hosted by F3T local sponsors, North Platte River Fly Shop, Reef Fly Shop, Ugly Bug Fly Shop, Wyoming Anglers, Cliff Outdoors and Wyoming Fly Fishing Guide Service.
“Each of the sponsors will have booths at the Trade Show, which provides anglers with the opportunity to get to know vendors, ask questions or just exchange fishing tips. They’re also going to be giving away some awesome prizes like guided fishing trips and equipment,” Houck said.
Supporting local fly shops is one of F3T’s overarching goals, as a portion of discounted,
advance ticket sales will directly aid fishing as well as habitat-related conservation groups.
These tickets are $15 and can be purchased at any of the sponsoring fly shops as well as The Wonder Bar. Any Remaining tickets will be sold for $20 at the door.
