Brews, Bugs, And The Big Screen | F3T Returns To Asheville

F3t Asheville

In their 12th annual tour, F3T will be stopping in Asheville, NC this year for another epic night of fly fishing, beer and food. Brought to you by Hunter Banks, this year’s event kicks off on Saturday, March 31 with two showings at 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. After watching this year’s trailers, we couldn’t be more stoked for the show. Be sure to get your tickets soon, because they will sell out!

Unreal Destinations

This year’s F3T has an epic lineup of eight different films taking you from the Arctic Circle to the Tanzanian Wilderness and everywhere in between. Just watching this year’s trailers, you really get a feel for the locations, the fish and the folks who are pushing the limits of fly fishing today. Check out the stoke reel below or you can view all of this year’s trailers here.

Don’t Forget Food and Beer

This showing on the tour is always a party. Hosted at Highland Brewing Company, there will be full access to an  amazing beer selection and three food trucks on the property for guests to enjoy.

For The Early Birds

If you have plans that evening or kids with an early bedtime, don’t worry! You can catch the matinee showing at 2:00 p.m. while still enjoying the same film, raffles, and of course access to the bar. What’s better than having a beer in the early afternoon while watching fly fishing films with the family?

About The F3T Tour

The first of its kind, the Fly Fishing Film Tour is in its 12th year running and will be featuring 8 films in more than 175 cities in eight countries. That’s pretty damn impressive. A portion of all ticket sales directly support conservation work and fishing-related charities around the world. Last year F3T events raised over $500,000. Again, that’s pretty damn impressive.
