What a great time we had on Friday night in Abby for our first IP show in Canada for the 2011 year! With less than a month to put everything together, Reaction Fly and Tackle delivered.
A casting competition put on by Rio which feature Peter,Reuben and Simon as the “JUDGES” brought in well over 50 people to try it out. They printed 50 sheets and ran out before 7pm.
We let everyone stay out and get a chance to try it out before we started the Films. We kicked off the films around 7:30pm to a packed small venue in Abby which had over 140 people attend.
After the first hour of never seen before footage, we gave out over $1500 in prizes to those who attended. We want to thank all the companies who gave prizes. Reaction Fly and Tackle, Rio,Redington,Simms,Venture River Boats,BC Outdoors,Sturgeon Slayers,FlyBC,Patagonia,Beattie Outdoor Productions,Sage and many more.
Folks enjoyed food,beers,and of course our 2011 selection for the Fly Fishing Film Tour. Special guest Simon Gawesworth came out to join us. He was in town to attend the Spey Clave on Saturday put on by Michael and Young.
