Fly Fishing film festival coming to Dunedin

On the 14th August 2018, the annual fly fishing tradition is back to salute the impending summer.

The world's most extensive fishing film festival hits Dunedin's Metro Cinema on the second show of the New Zealand leg of its 2018 worldwide tour celebrating its 13th year of bringing fly fishing films to the big screen with global adventures and big fish galore.

Be inspired by the best Kiwi and Australian fishing filmmakers as they premiere their latest offerings. It also gives the Otago fishing community an opportunity to share their passion for the sport by attending the screening.

Aussie Fly Fisher’s Goodoo is the festival feature film. Murray cod, Australia’s largest exclusively freshwater fish, can eat a full-grown duck in one hit. They are the apex predator of our inland rivers. Join Joshua Hutchins and his crew as they chase down the ultimate prize: the elusive one metre Goodoo on fly.

Experience the thrill first hand, travelling by four-wheel-drive, helicopter and foot to some of NSW’s best native fisheries with hard hits, wild Aussie landscapes, and clear water sight-fishing, this is Murray cod as you’ve never seen them before.

Gin-Clear Media's Pure Fly NZ, a New Zealand based fly fishing TV show that has drawn wide acclaim, is another highlight of the festival. This year we will be screening a preview episode from the third series. The episode features Rene Vaz as he explores Otago and the surprising variety of winter trout fishing available to the enterprising angler, proving that in NZ the season never really ends!

Other films include Atlanticus, Three Runs and My Mum Vala.
