Between rain clouds…

Published on Friday, March 14th, 2008

We feared rain might dampen our fishing spirit today but luckily we were able to catch a few hours of dryness, as well as some fish! Spring lake fishing is heating up nicely in the Lower Mainland so take advantage of it during this spring break.

AEG Media, a media production company specializing in adventure fly-fishing entertainment, recently announced the updated film and venue list for their upcoming film tour, which includes a show at the Douglas College Performing Arts Theater on April 5th.

Now in its third year, the film tour will travel to more than 60 U.S. cities this winter. The films AEG Media produce are not the average instructional and stereotypical videos that that have been all too common, they are instead high-energy, adrenaline rushing expedition documentaries mixed with stunning cinematography, crazy mishaps and encounters and cutting edge music. AEG Media’s mission is to revolutionize the world of fly-fishing, one epic adventure at a time. Film locations are chosen with the intent to share a glimpse into unique destinations around the globe and to create a fishing experience for generations to come. Past filming locations include Patagonia, New Zealand and Iceland. Current productions include Mongolia, Argentina, Bahamas and Christmas Island.

AEG’s passion for fly-fishing is matched by their belief in conservation. They are members of 1% For The Planet, AFFTA, Trout Unlimited and Federation of Fly Fishers. As part of AEG Media’s commitment to the environment, they will be producing a DVD highlighting the 2008 film tour following its conclusion. 100 percent of the DVD sales will go directly to the conservation organizations of Trout Unlimited, the Federation of Fly Fishers and 1% For The Planet.

The 2008 Fly Fishing Film Tour is presented by Loop Fly Tackle and Adventures. Official and Major sponsors include Patagonia, Costa Del Mar, Scientific Anglers, Volvo, Brunton, Gerber, RO Drift Boats, Rising, Loon, The Drake and Big Sky Inflatables.

The AEG crew is comprised of four partners: Chris Owens, Thad Robison, Justin Crump and Brian Jill, known as the “AEG Fish Bums.” Their unique look into the fly-fishing industry is generating enthusiastic responses and mild controversy. The film tour consists of not only AEG’s films but also films submitted from other independent filmmakers selected by AEG that impact, entertain and educate the world of fly-fishing while at the same time generating enthusiasm and interest from the “new” generation of fly fishers.

The tour showcases some of fly-fishing’s most innovative filmmakers.  This year’s tour will include highlights of films from eight independent filmmakers including AEG Medias highly anticipated upcoming release “Fish Bum I: Mongolia – River Wolf”, “Castaway Films – Equilibrium”, “Double Haul Productions – Reel Time”, “Fly On The Wall Travels – River Poets”, “Roll Cast Productions – Fishizzle”, “Beaver Hill Productions – 4 Seasons of Steelhead”, “Beattie Outdoor Productions – Slovenia” and “Felt Soul Media – Red Gold”. See previews now!

Get your tickets early as they are expected to be sold out very fast!

FWR SUBSCRIBERS, TICKETS AND DVD GIVE-AWAYS!

For our subscribers, I have 3 pairs of tickets to the show and 6 DVD copies of “Fish Bum Volume 1: Mongolia, River Wolf” to give away in the next two weeks! More information to come.
