About the Movie
The Fly Fishing Film Tour is the original and world’s largest event of its kind. It features incredible footage from waterways worldwide. The films offer a great blend of inspiring cinematography, hilarious comedy, poignant commentary and tons of amazing fish. This movie is a collection of some of the top films featured in the 2012 tour: Season On the Fly (Waterline Media) - Gorgeous Florida coastline serves as the backdrop for this adventuresome journey following the Tarpon migration; Sipping Dry (Sharptail Media) - "The Dry Fly Capital of the World", the upper Missouri River is the canvas used for coloring the character of some truly addicted Trout Bums; Fall Bullies (Todd Moen) - Beckie Clarke displays her great sense of humor and passion for fly fishing while slaying Bull Trout in some remote rivers outside Fernie, BC; Hatch (Gin Clear Media) - Hatch documents the world's most extraordinary insect hatches and the fantastic fishing that accompanies them; ReVerb: A Punk Rock Love Story (Third Year Fly Fisher) - Chicago punk-band "Pegboy" finds solace, serenity and much needed quiet time while fly fishing for trout throughout the Midwest; Doc of the Drakes (Fishbite Media) - Accomplished surgeon, Dr. Robert Franklin takes to Silver Creek, ID to show that Parkinson's may shorten a career but it can't squash the passion for fishing; FLY: A Legacy (Robbie Goodwin) - Filmed in Scotland, this is about one man's memories, evolution and passage through life, with fly fishing for Atlantic Salmon playing the lead role and metaphor; Right On It (Get Lost Films) - Hunting Bonefish in the Bahamas - getting off the grid with your buddies - it doesn't get better than that.
First off, I rented the HD version. Each and every section of the film (cuts from select movies) were all sub-HD. I bet the SD version is exactly the same. Second, this movie is made up of 10-15 minute snippets from other fly fishing movies. All of clips they chose were VERY mediocre. I just wanted to be entertained and wasn't expecting anything amazing, but I was very let down. The editing, the camera angles/shots, everything about this screamed amateur. I guess the trailers for the films on the F3 tour are far more entertaining than the actual movies. Check out the FF3 tour in person if it comes through your town (supports a good cause, drink a few beers with fellow fisherman) but I would pass on renting this. Use your saved money for tippet or flies. Seriously.
The F3T at it again
These guys never seem to disappoint. From the salt flats to the river this film has it all. I'm always looking forward to what the F3T has in store next. If you're a fisherman of any sorts you'll love this film!
Terrible scores (music), bad editing, off fishing topics, shameless marketing/advertising... The FFFT 2011 was much better. Save some money and more importantly some time and don't watch this awful thing.
