I’m happy to announce that the first annual Islamorada Fishing Film Festival will be held on Sunday, May 22, under the stars at Founders Park.
Great movies, great location, great cause. All proceeds go to United Way of the Florida Keys. If you like to fish or just cruise around on the gin clear waters of the Florida Keys, you’re going to love these flicks.
United Way has teamed up with the Fly Fishing Film Tour to bring you some of the best fishing films in the country, including a great new movie “Satori” about permit fishing, filmed by the Keys’ own Capt. Will Benson. Also a coup – getting to show the 1973 cult classic Tarpon, about which these distinguished gentlemen once said:
“Tarpon is a timeless and beautifully executed film about life, sport and culture. You’ll be moved, amused, outraged and, most of all, entertained.” – Tom Brokaw, Journalist and Author
“This long-lost gem of a film has acquired cult status in the fly fishing world, and with good reason. It has the most breathtaking footage of the tarpon-stalking experience that you’ll ever see. Like the fish itself, this is a work of art.” -—Carl Hiaasen, Author
Thanks and hope to see you there!
