15th annual F3T Fly Fishing Film Tour comes to Lees-McRae

For 15 years the F3T Fly Fishing Film Tour has brought the best fishing tales on the road across the U.S. This April, the tour’s collection of short films from around the world will be coming to Lees-McRae for the third time.   

On Saturday, April 2, Tate-Evans Park will transform into a theater where students, faculty, staff, and community members will gather for a viewing of this year’s film. The event will take place that evening from 7−10 p.m.

“This outdoor, family-friendly event brings together people who love the outdoors and enjoy fishing,” Associate Professor and Program Coordinator of Outdoor Recreation Management Katie Wall said. “The films are always top-notch and a hit with our audience. We have such strong support from our community.”

In addition to the film, many local businesses, who are sponsoring  the event, will have booths set up with information for attendees. This year’s sponsors are RiverGirl Fishing Company, High Country Guide Service, Valle Crucis Park, High Country Boats, MayFly Project, West Fork Anglers, and Due South Outfitters.

There will also be a raffle at the end of the evening where attendees can enter to win wading trips, fishing lessons, t-shirts, hats, and more.

Tickets to the F3T Fly Fishing Film Tour are free for Lees-McRae students, and staff and faculty may purchase tickets for $5. Community members are also encouraged to join in the fun. Adult tickets are $10, children’s tickets are $5, and children under three years old may participate for free. Tickets can be reserved and purchased here.
