You’re hunkered down in your man cave in the dead of winter creating works of feather, fur and steel art designed to coax the various species of fish to your waiting net. Why not take a break and spend an evening with like minded men and women at the second annual Trout Club Film Festival. View a series of inspirational short films produced by F3T on the sport of fly fishing. You’re ticket includes a cocktail reception with light appetizers, a raffle ticket for a chance to win fly fishing equipment from the show’s sponsors and a chance to meet the producers of F3T, local fly fishing guides and professional fly fishermen.
No matter what you’re level of expertise or collection of gear, if you love fly fishing you need to make plans to attend this one evening of films. Organized by the Trout Club, this second annual event is opened to everyone to attend. Tickets are $10 in advance and are available online or at Orvis in Woodmere, The Backpackers Shop in Sheffield and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.
Tickets will be $15 at the door the night of the event ($5 for high school students).
At the inaugural film festival last year, nearly 450 attended. The Trout Club is hoping to top that number this year. “We encourage all anglers to attend, whether it is already your passion or you are a newcomer to the sport and want to learn about the local fishing opportunities,” said Phil Murphy, Trout Club President.

Magnetic North – spotlighting the incredible fishing of Alaska and the human attraction to this wild state
The Brothers Brown – a story of three friends who grew up fishing on the famed Au Sable River
