IF4 Official Selection | Out There

Next up in our 2021 IF4 Official Selections is Out There, by Hooké.

From the filmmaker: 2020 was a difficult year for everyone, and let’s hope we can all put this behind us. But as funny as it is, the past year ended up being quite memorable for Fred and the crew. You want to know why? Because fly fishing is the best remedy out there. Follow Hooké’s journey through the wild rivers of Terrace, British Columbia, the lakes and rivers of Eeyou Istchee Baie-James, and the magnificent Matapedia river in Gaspésie. They get out there in search of big pike, Atlantic salmon, steelhead, and Coho salmon. Follow Hooké on this expedition in some of the most beautiful places on earth!

IF4 Official Selection | Fuerte

Fly fishing and the west coast of Colombia don’t typically go hand-and-hand. There’s a jungle, four transportation shifts, and an unrelenting coast of jagged waves. Good thing the crew at PopFizz wouldn’t have it any other way. Join the guys as they go deep into the wild and come out with a story worth telling. Law enforcement included.

IF4 Official Selection | Baltics

The next official selection to the 2021 Virtual IF4 is Baltics, from Focusonthefly Media.
 
From the filmmaker: Baltic salmon are extraordinary creatures. Isolated from their Atlantic cousins during the last Ice Age, these fish have developed an extraordinary behavior, adapting their qualities to some of the wildest and longest river systems in Europe, being perhaps the most powerful and challenging salmon of all. Sanna Koljonen is our host in this incredible adventure chasing her first Baltic salmon of the season in the heart of Swedish Lapland.

IF4 Film Trailer | The Art of Fly Fishing

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.
