Chris Keig and the crew at the Fly Fishing Film Tour raised the bar again. What an exciting evening of films, all in the name of raising money for conservation.
Dr. Aaron Adams joined us and shared BTT’s conservation initiatives, as well as the latest information on the Tarpon Acoustic Tagging Project. Dr. Adams and his team are making great progress with this research project, and they are busy tagging tarpon throughout the Southeastern U.S.
Capt. Chris Wittman and Capt. Daniel Andrews from Captains for Clean Water were also in attendance and updated the record crowd on their clean-water initiatives. They also talked about their recent trip to Washington, D.C., to fight for Everglades restoration funding. It has been an exciting couple of years for Captains for Clean Water, and they are making great progress at the state and national levels.
As for the films, they were fantastic! From catching giant rainbows in Alaska to chasing the Silver King around the world, there was a great mix of fresh and saltwater fly fishing. In case you missed the event, here’s a link to the F3T trailers: flyfilmtour.com/watch-trailers.
We would like to thank everyone who attended this special evening and helped us raise over $4,500 for conservation! A special thank you to Orlando Outfitters, TBA Outdoors, Nautilus Reels and Fish Hippie for the raffle prize donations.
Good fishing, and we will see you at the 2019 F3T!
