Fly Fishing Film Fest Coming To The Dogwood
By N3 Outdoors Team
Our area boasts some of the finest fly fishing opportunities to be had anywhere and anglers come from all over the world to take advantage of what the Mighty Muskegon can yield.
It is a rapidly growing sport and with good reason. Fly fishing takes you to places that you would never normally go. As you follow the river upstream, you see parts of the wild that only the river can take you to and that you might not be able to access if it weren’t for walking through the water. It allows you a whole new view of nature from a perspective that you wouldn’t get otherwise.
For the third year the Muskegon Fly Shop, Newaygo’s one stop shopping spot for fly aficionados from beginners to seasoned veterans, will be hosting...
...a film festival that celebrates the sport as well as giving viewers an up close look at some of the premier fishing sites throughout the world.
The 2017 Fly Fishing Film Tour will be held at the Dogwood Center in Fremont on Friday April 21 at 7pm.
These films are enticing to not only those who have spent ample time waist deep in water with rod readied for action but also those who might be new to the sport or even those in a contemplative state about taking the plunge into this alluring activity.
This is Fly Fishing cinema at its best, From Siberia to Idaho, Mexico, Florida, Kamchatka, Alaska, Montana and more, the notable characters, unique storylines and unparalleled fishing in these films will lead you on an adventure around the globe.
In addition there will be door prizes including four rods and reels, vendors including Mystic Fly Rods and D-Loop Outfitters and the chance to talk a bit of fishing with other enthusiasts.
Advance tickets can be purchased at the Fly Shop, D-Loop Outfitters, The Blind Squirrel Tavern for $13 , and at the door the night of the event for $15.

“I fish because I love to . . . because I love the environs where trout are found . . . because I suspect that men are going along this way for the last time, and I for one don’t want to waste the trip . . . and, finally, not because I regard fishing as being so terribly important but because I suspect that so many of the other concerns of men are equally unimportant––and not nearly so much fun.” -Robert Traver
