Down the Hatch Feature Image

We’ve, once again,  teamed up with our friends at Orvis for the Down the Hatch Fly Fishing Festival in Missoula, April 25th from 3PM-9PM, at Caras Park & Wilma Theater.  We’ve supported this event every year it’s been in Missoula, and some years that it hasn’t been in Missoula.  Last year, we dropped a drift boat full of beer koozies from a crane. Who know’s what will unfold this year. We hope to see you all there.

Here’s what Orvis has to say about the event:

On April 25, 2015 we’ll be invading Caras Park from 3:00 to 6:30 PM… look for the Orvis caps, wading jackets and generally fishy 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 2015 season. Entrance to the film fest is $10 – with all proceeds going to Wild Steelheaders United – 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.

Prizes will include sweet new Orvis equipment, awesome gear from our friends and sponsors, and the grand prize of a wicked cool trip at an undisclosed tropical destination*. 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.
