Ladies and Gents the
Fly Fishingfilm tour will be in vancouver on june 12th 2014.
This time the proceeds will benefit the Seymour Salmonid Soceity http://www.seymoursalmon.com/index.php and the Norman Rothstein Theatre.
Last year we were able to raise $2100. So that was $1050 to the BC steelhead society and $1050 for the Norman Rothsetin theatre (non profit)
The date is June 12th.... right before fathers day. The doors will open again at 7:00pm and show at 7:30pm The Norman Rothstein Theatre is located at 950 west 41st ave in vancouver. easy access by skytrain via oakridge center.
Cold beer and wine as well as non alcoholic beverages will be available again this year. And who doesn't like enjoying a cold refreshing beer while watching fish porn in HD on a theatre sized screen.
The films are absolutely stunning. The cinemtography is top notch... The film on alaskan king salmon is pretty amazing and makes me miss home.
Tour website: http://flyfishingfilmtour.ca/ the films trailers are there.
The show will have the same price point $15 for adults and $10 for those under 16. Tickets are available online. (already sold one too)
They will also be available at the door. I will be contacting our local shops again shortly. They were all a tremendous help last year, and without their support shows like this are difficult to put on. Thank you pacific angler, M&Y and Sea Run Fly and tackle.
The donations have been coming in now, and we are poised to give away a lot of great stuff again this year.
Last years big item was a pontoon boat. and this year the Generous folks at Winston Rod Co http://www.winstonrods.com/ have donated a Boron III 9' 8wt rod. This is the nicest single handed rod I have ever had in my hands. Its been incredibly difficult looking at this thing while I take my ammundson out to the vedder. It comes with a case and bag.
Costa https://www.costadelmar.com/home has donated some wonderful sunglasses. Both in mens and womens. They are very nice. Includes case.
There will be a ton of shirts, and hats to give away as well.
Now the important part.
The Seymour Salmonid Society is a non-profit organization that is responsible for running the Seymour River Fish Hatchery and Education Centre. Our purpose is to enhance fish stocks and encourage proper management of fisheries in the Seymour River. We also aim to educate the public about the value of the Seymour River and the salmonids it supports as a resource for everyone living in British Columbia.
The proceeds of this show will be put to good use. I had the opportunity to visit Kurt up at the hatchery and it's a great program. Especially this year with the hatchery's largest release of steelhead smolts. almost 50,000 released.

I had an opportunity to speak to the folks at ruddocks ranch and they are donating a trip.
Last year they donated two days two night two people...... this time it's two days two nights four people and use of a wall tent. Which would make an exceptional fishing trip.
Thank you for this donation, and you can visit their site at www.ruddocks.ca/
Tickets available in Richmond now
Berry's bait and tackle
14651 Westminster Hwy, Richmond, BC V6V 1A4
I would like to add that we have another amazing donation from the Motorized U Tube company (http://www.motorizedu-tubecompany.com/) Thank you Dave Hale for this donation.
Its a sweet float tube and the link is worth checking out. I like to call it the MUT. it's almost a $700 value.
We will be adding this to the already great list of prizes and giveaways. there is over $5000 of merchandise that will be giving and raffling off at the show.
This is a non profit show benefiting the NRT and the Seymour Salmonid Society.
June 12th 950 west 41st ave vancouver 6:30pm.
tickets are only $15, that is a a great value.
hope to see you there.
this thursday ladies and gents.
over $5000 in donated merchandise.... will be a great night to support a beautiful system.
I would like to thank all of those that attended the show. I believe it was a success. We managed to raise $1650 after everything was said and done. It was a smaller turn out for the show..... possibly because it's june. regardless, thats $825 for the seymours educational program. and $825 for the theatre.
thank you to the sponsors; Ruddocks Ranch for the trip, Mr.Hale for the U-Boat donation and display, and the corporate sponsors; costa, winston, and simms.
also the local fly shops; Pacific Angler, Highwater tackle, Barry's Bait and and tackle and Sea Run fly and tackle.
congrats to the winners of the rod, boat and trip..... I was drooling over that rod for months.
it was nice meeting the bcfishingreports.com members as well.
