Fly-fishing movie CONNECT comes to Seattle on Nov. 17

The Wild Steelhead Coalition and Emerald Water Anglers are hosting a movie titled CONNECT by filmmakers Chris Patterson and Jim Klug, who also created the highly acclaimed movies DRIFT and RISE 6:30 p.m. (starts at 7 p.m.) on Thursday, Nov. 17 at the Guild 45th Theatre, 2115 North 45th Ave. in Seattle.

CONNECT is the most ambitious, large-scale fly fishing film ever made. Continuing in the tradition of the multisegment, multi-story format that Confluence Films has become known for, CONNECT introduces a number of new locations, exotic species, and compelling characters that epitomize and exemplify the sport of fly fishing.

Shot on location in Japan, Yellowstone National Park, the Yukon Drainage of Alaska, the flats of Cuba, the coast of Maine, and in the wilds of Tanzania, Africa, this feature length movie will transport viewers around the world in search of new waters and exhilarating travel experiences.

The movie features well-known anglers Greg Vincent, Jeff Currier, Jimmy Bartschi, Craig Mathews, Masa Katsumata, Brian Porter, and Captain Eric Wallace, and more than a dozen different fish species, both freshwater and saltwater.

Cost is $10, and purchase your tickets early as it is expected to sell out quickly. There will be a round of great prizes to raffle off, including gear and guided trips. Purchase tickets at the Ticket River website.

All proceeds from this event benefit the Wild Steelhead Coalition , specifically their current work with restoring and protecting the Elwha River wild steelhead runs.
