Burlington, VT – The Green Mountain Program of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) is pleased to announce the Vermont debut of the International Fly Fishing Film Festival on March 13, 2018 at the McCarthy Arts Center on the St. Michael’s College campus in Colchester, VT. The evening serves as a benefit for the local PHWFF program which serves injured and disabled military service personnel and disabled veterans in the greater Burlington, Vermont area. In addition to the fantastic films, the evening includes fly tying demonstrations, special guest speakers, a raffle, and the opportunity to learn more about the work of PHWFF in Vermont.
The International Fly Fishing Film Tour (IF4) consists of short and feature length films produced by professional filmmakers from all corners of the globe, showcasing the passion, lifestyle and culture of fly-fishing. The films at this popular event are capturing the attention of anglers around the world. The Vermont debut is being brought to you in part by Saint Michael’s College, Saint Michael’s College Military Community Services Office, Saint Michael’s College Student Veterans of America chapter and Central Vermont Trout Unlimited Chapter #138.
The Green Mountain PHWFF Program conducts year-round fly fishing activities for injured and disabled military service personnel and disabled veterans – fly tying, rod building, and fishing classes as well as numerous fishing trips throughout the year. The program is offered at no cost to participants.
“We’re excited to host the IF4 in Vermont! This special evening will help fund the equipment, supplies, trip costs and other expenses associated with providing our disabled veteran participants year-round fly fishing opportunities, in the classroom and on the water. The program transcends fly fishing as it enables them to reconnect with their community and our great outdoors as part of their healing journey,” says SPC (ret) Joshua Gerasimof, U.S. Army, Program Lead of the Green Mountain Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing program.
Doors open at 5:30pm on March 13, 2018 with the show starting promptly at 6:00pm.
