We’re lucky to have an incredible asset in the Ogden River Parkway and even more lucky to have community stewards who not only fought to restore that river, but are keen on preserving the river for decades to come.
The Fly Fishing Film Tour not only embraces the sport and focus of anglers but also honors and recognizes the land assets in our community and around the world.
The Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T) will be at Peery’s Egyptian on Friday, March 6, for its fifth year in Ogden.
The festival travels across the continent with more than 150 shows in Canada and the US, each show supporting local filmmakers and more importantly creating awareness for all of the local conservation groups who benefit from the proceeds of the tour’s 150 stops. In Ogden proceeds from the F3T benefit the preservation of the Ogden River trail ways.
We love this video from last year’s festival, featuring our incredible Ogden River Parkway, just moments away from Historic 25th Street.
The Ogden River offers citizens, locals and visitors a recreational oasis in the heart of downtown Ogden. Designated a Blue Ribbon fishery, the Ogden River is a gem in our own backyard. The mission in bringing F3T to Ogden is to help residents realize how accessible the river is to do some fishing on the weekend or just to enjoy the bike path and the beauty of nature that the river adds to our downtown.
Tickets are $14 at smithstix.com, Peery’s Egyptian Theater Box Office, 801-689-8700, or www.flyfishingfilmtour.com. Discounted tickets are available at Roosters, Angler’s Den and Smith and Edwards.
There are several trailers for the 2015 film selections available for preview now.
The Fly Fishing Film Tour is brought to Ogden UT by the Ogden City Corporation. All proceeds from this event will be used for preservation of the Ogden and Weber Rivers.
