Just announced, the Fly Fishing Film Tour will be back at the Banko Alehouse Cinemas @ SteelStacks, March 30th.  This year doors will open at 6pm for cocktails and food from the Mike and Ike Bistro ( not included in ticket price), and we will be featuring expanded fly tying demos, door prizes and a 3 amazing float trip raffles!  Film Time is 7:30pm.  For details and tickets : CLICK HERE.  Please consider getting your tickets EARLY, not only is it a $5 savings, but last year we SOLD OUT, and had to turn people away.  Hope to see you there!

Official Press release from ArtsQuest:

Fly fishing aficionados, lay down that cast as the original and preeminent exhibition of fly fishing cinema, the acclaimed Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T), returns March 30, 7:30 p.m., to the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks.
Dubbed “a cut above anything we’ve seen before” by the film judges, this year’s selection of films is sure to impress. The tour features nine story-driven films with backdrops ranging from Bolivia to Saskatchewan, Montana to Virginia, and Patagonia to the Seychelles. From the hunt for the world’s largest brook trout in South America to the pursuit of billfish on the fly off the coast of Virginia, these films showcase remarkable places, larger than life characters and fish that will haunt any angler’s dreams. The Fly Fishing Film Tour showing at the ArtsQuest Center is the only screening of the film tour in region; the complete list of films and trailers is available at www.flyfilmtour.com.
Guests are invited to arrive starting at 6 p.m. to see fly tying demonstrations by Trout Unlimited members, talk with fellow anglers and enjoy food and beverages from the ArtsQuest Center’s Mike & Ike Bistro (not included with ticket price). New this year is a fundraising raffle featuring incredible float trips on the Upper Delaware River, donated by Jerry Hadden of the Delaware River Fly Fishing Guide Service; the Bighorn River in Mont., donated by Steve Galletta of The Bighorn Angler; and the Bitterroot, Clark Fork or Blackfoot River in Mont., donated by Russell Parks of the Missoulian Angler.
Proceeds from the Fly Fishing Film Tour benefit the Monocacy Chapter of Trout Unlimited’s habitat improvement work and coldwater conservation efforts on streams throughout the Lehigh Valley, as well as the ArtsQuest Arts Education Programming Fund, which helps to support ArtsQuest’s free music, arts and education programming for the community.
