The next selection for the 2021 Virtual IF4 is The Art of Fly Fishing, by Bluff Line Media. This film was the winner of the inaugural Stimmie Awards, earning its place in the 2021 IF4. From the filmmakers:
Brooke Belohlavek is an artist and educator in remote Baggs, Wyoming, who found a love for fly fishing one day after an ascent atop Grand Teton. Before long, her newfound passion made its way to her canvas. Today, Brooke paints trout for folks all over the country who want to enjoy a beautiful reminder of their fly-fishing experiences. This summer, we joined Brooke to fish and film some high-country creeks and rivers that are close to her heart for The Art of Fly Fishing.
Be sure to check out the rest of the films and buy tickets for your local show at the IF4 website.
The IF4 Original Film, “Focus”, is now available to view on Fly Fusion Streaming! An inspirational fly-fishing film about an adventerous couple pursuing their passion, which leads them on a memorable adventure under a smoke soaked skyline in search of the perfect image of oversized dry-fly sipping rainbows. For those who’ve never had a trout rise to a dry, a fish might just be a cold-blooded creature with fins and spots, but to you and I they’re the objects of our memories, of our pictures, of our attention. They’re why, as we leave the river, we’re already dreaming about the next trip. Click here to watch!
