Join us at the 2nd Annual Orvis Film Fest at the historic Wilma Theatre.

Come hang at Down the Hatch: make new friends, rendezvous with old ones, check out new (and awesome) gear, dance to live music from The Lil’ Smokies, cast a few rods. And have a beer or two (or four) on us.

We’ll be invading Caras Park from 4:00 to 6:30 PM… look for the Orvis caps, wading jackets and generally fish-bum looking people. We’re bringing beer from Big Sky Brewing, all the best new gear we have to offer and some pretty divine local food.After the park party, join the migration over to the Wilma Theatre, where we’ll kick back and take in the Orvis Film Fest at 7:00 PM. We’re showing the best fishy films from around the world to get you revved up and ready for the 2014 season. Entrance to the film fest is $10 – with all proceeds going to Montana TU – and includes an entry into the raffle. And when we say raffle, we don’t mean tee shirts and ball caps (though there will be those too). We came to play.

Tickets are also available for purchase at Blackfoot River Outfitters and Grizzly Hackle Fly Shop in Missoula, MT.

***Awesome prizes come from Orvis and our kick-ass friends and sponsors, ranging from sweet gear like an Orvis H2 outfit to an NRS Pike inflatable kayak. But that’s not all. Each friend/sponsor is throwing some sweet gear into the mix. Add in an assortment of destination trips around the Rockies (day trips, overnight trips, full lodge packages) and the Grand Prize, a trip for two to El Pescador Lodge in Belize (think bonefish and boat drinks – airfare not included) and this becomes one of the most epic fish bum raffles ever!

And who could forget all the swag to pillage and share? Entry for the raffle is included in your ticket price, so kick back and enjoy the show – but be ready to sit on the edge of your seat come raffle time.
