A couple of years ago I saw a film called Eastern Rises at a small film festival put on by the Michigan State University Outdoors Club. I am not exaggerating when I say this, but was is one of the most beautiful films I have seen in a very long time.
Granted, my fishing experience only extends to fishing for eel in the rivers of Pakistan; Eastern Rises made me want to learn how to fly fish properly. Also, it sent me on a hunt for other fly fishing films. Thanks to an email from a dear friend, I am excited to share that the FT3 Fly Fishing Film Tour is rolling through our area this month.
The event is hosted by Nomad Anglers of Okemos and will be held at Dublin Square Irish Pub on April 23rd. Doors open at 6pm and films starts at 7pm.
Tickets($15) are available in advance at Nomad Anglers (5100 Marsh Rd Okemos, MI 48864, 517-349-6696), online($18) and at the door( $20) on the night of the event.
Maybe, after the week of Capital City Film Festival, you will be ready for some more quality time in front of the screen.
