    Default Flyfishing Film Tour showing March 24th

    The Costa Flyfishing Film Tour will be at the Bear Tooth on Thursday the 24th. I know my wife and I will be there. With spring just around the corner, how can you beat spending an evening dreaming of fishing while having some great beer and food? (For those that have never been to the Bear Tooth, they serve beer, wine, and margaritas along with excellent food in the theater.) The tickets are already on sale at the Tooth box office. They're a bit more than the usual $3 ticket price ($12), but it should be worth it.

    Chuck, shall I save you a seat?

    The social pressure put on me to sign up is overwhelming! I'm not kidding my palms are sweating and I have butterflies , but my heart is worried cause I'm opposed to establishments that serve hummus instead of butter for the bread.... Do you guys think they'll teach me how to make some semblance of a roll cast?

    No fear, fullbush. You can get a steak and a beer for dinner, no hummus needed. Or a bacon cheeseburger, an all meat pizza, or even halibut, salmon, or cod. Their beer, for what it's worth, is the best in town.

    No doubt...........there might be a bunch of yuppies but the film and food should out weight any ill feelings for the comm haters there!

    I dont know about best beer in town(Midnight Sun), but it is really good. I will be there and it wont be for the hummus! If you want Fullbush you can come sit over in the commercial fisherman/ sometimes I like to catch them one at a time area! I will save you a seat!

    I went to it last year and it was pretty cool. I will be attending this year again, definitely worth it. Now that it is at a place that serves great beer, it definitely makes it worth it.

    It was a good time, for sure. I got to meet muzzyman and a few other folks, and I got a good chuckle out of the longest beer line I have ever seen at the Tooth. Not enough cold water films for my taste, but the two pieces of permit fishing and the mako shark flyfishing were pretty cool to watch. Next year they're likely to add a second showing, so it'll hopefully be easier to score tickets the next time around.

    So has anyone perfected catching salmon sharks on flyrods yet?

    (cause those makos were sick)


    also, I'm pretty sure I've seen pike bigger than that big musky...
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    There was an article in Fish Alaska some years back about salmon shark on fly rods. I remember that they connected, but not much else.

    I had a blast myself and won a cool coffee table book in the raffle. Personally I thought the Wisco Musky fishing video was the best! Those 2 fellas in New Zealand were pretty funny as well!

    If I remember right didn't they say they finally got fed up with not hooking up and ended up throwing herring with their 16 weights...

    I know it can be done, salmon sharks are visual feeders...
