Costa Fly Fishing Film Tour 2014
It is time for the annual Fly Fishing Film Tour presented by Costa. There are seventy seven showing locations in the United States, and locations in Canada and tickets are now available in most locations for $15.
The tour kicks off in Helena, MT, hosted by Pat Barnes from Missouri River Trout Unlimited. Then the team spends two days in Minneapolis, MN, where the event is hosted by The Fly Angler.
In February, the team arrives in Charleston, SC, where The Charleston Angler and The Lowcountry Fly Shop jointly sponsor the showings. One special showing for charity is held in Knoxville, TN. That date is hosted by Three Rivers Anglers, and the proceeds will be given to the Legacy Parks Foundation.

Tickets are available online from the link above, or at the door, but at many locations tickets are often sold out about two weeks prior to the showing.
There are several short films that will last for two-and-a-half hours and this year they include:
North of Wild
Features John Gierach, Aimee Eaton, Robin Reeve, and Simon Cuay. This short film explores fly fishing in Labrador for brook trout and landlocked salmon. No motor boats here; the crew travel by Hudson Bay freighter canoes after they arrive by float plane.
Is a film about twin brothers from Virginia. They fish the Shenandoah Valley, just two hours away from Washington, DC. They target brook trout, rainbows, and browns in a fishery with an abundance of smallmouth bass, carp, and musky.
A Kinetic Loop
Takes a look at the past, present, and future of fly fishing. The film provides a look at the fathers of fly fishing of the past, and innovators of fly fishing. If you are into history and where fly fishing is going, this video will provide you with the comparison of the past to the current techniques used, equipment, and how the species list for fly fishing has expanded.
Long Live the King
Is a story about Alaska’s king salmon, which have declined over the past two years. This film explains the importance of having a sustainable fishery so that the king salmon will increase in numbers. In addition to some fishing action, there are several conversations related to the thought of how to bring back the population that anglers in Alaska have enjoyed in the past. This video will get your passion going for the king salmon - or a species in your area that has declined in population, to ensure that you help manage you own fishery and encourage that species’ comeback.
