F3T Invades Austin

It happened on a Thursday night in Austin,TX. The Fly Fishing Film Tour came to Texas and the afternoon looked like a fresh hatch on the river as people socialized before the film began.

It was my first time to see it at the beautiful Paramount Theater located off of Congress Ave. Pretty sure this was on my mind more than work that day.

Arriving a little early and patiently waiting for the doors to open. The crowd started growing outside with everyone trying to be one of the first 500 through the door in order to get a pretty cool hat from the F3T donated by Howler Brothers.

The great part about the social hour is meeting old friends and meeting people face to face for the first time. I also enjoyed walking around and talking to the many sponsors who had a small booth set up inside the theater. Without these great companies and people this probably would not happen.

Oh yeah, there were fish tacos during the social.

I also had my name drawn a few times. One for a certificate for a fly line of choice from Scientific Anglers and a gift certificate to Backwoods Austin.

This was my view from the balcony. I had a great time and will be back again next year. The film was great and if you ever get the chance to see the short film Hit 'em again Doc, do so as it was my favorite of the night.
