FISHING — Fly casting champion Tim Rajeff is coming to North Idaho this weekend and he’s only part of the celebrity action during the two-day Sandpoint Fly Fishing Film Festival.
The event features the eight films edited into the Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T) to be shown at the Panida Theater on Friday night followed by the four films in the Internatonal Fly Fishing Film Festival (IF4) on Saturday night.
Doors open both nights at 6 followed by the films at 7. Tickets are $12 in advance at Big R or Eichardt’s in Sandpoint or $15 at the door.
“We have tons of prizes, including guided steelheading trips and fishing trips on the Kootenai, Missouri and Bitterroot rivers,” said Calvin Fuller of Big R Fly Shop in Ponderay.
“It was a lot of fun to have both film festivals last year, so we’re doing it again.”
On Saturday, Rajeff, an expert affiliated with fly rod and line companies, will help anglers with casting demos 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at a 40-foot by 100-foot casting pool in the Big R parking lot.
A casting competition for distance and accuracy with prizes is set for all levels of casters at 2 p.m.
