The 2017 Fly Fishing Film Tour will visit Tulsa on March 24, showcasing world-class fly fishing films as a fundraiser for host group Trout Unlimited Chapter 420 and Tulsa Fly Fishers.

"The 2017 lineup of films is their finest yet, with segments from Siberia, Idaho, Mexico, Florida, Alaska, Montana and more," said Frank Kohn of the host group. "This very popular film tour and raffle is the primary source of funds for our Trout Unlimited and Tulsa Fly Fishers chapters. Help support our local causes and come see the 2017 Fly Fishing Film Tour."

Trout Unlimited and Tulsa Fly Fishers regularly donates to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation for stream management activities and trout stocking programs.

This will be the 11th year for the film tour, which is dedicated to supporting the conservation groups that form the backbone of fly fishing's educational and environmental efforts. Major sponsors of the tour are Yeti, Costa and Simms.

Prizes will include a fly rod, several guided fishing trips, nets, and Film Tour fly collections.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. at the Montereau Coterie Theater, 6800 S. Granite Ave. in Tulsa, and the film will begin at 7. Tickets are $15 (cash only) at The Gadget Co., 15th and Boston; online by credit card at https://events.ticketprinting.com/event/22305; or at the door.
