2022 IF4 Spokane, Washington

Hosted by - Spokane Riverkeeper. Sponsored by Silver Bow.

We are mixing things up this round and our friends the Spokane Riverkeeper are hosting the International Fly Fishing Film Festival. Yes, this is the film event that we normally put together, but we felt this was a great opportunity for the Riverkeeper crew to raise some money for their organization. All ticket sales from the event go straight to the Spokane Riverkeeper to help their efforts in protecting the Spokane River.

We hope to see you there!

The Spokane Riverkeeper is very excited to be hosting the International Fly Fishing Film Festival during the 2022 tour. The IF4 is the world’s leading fly-fishing film event, featuring a stunning line-up of official selections that will take audiences on jaw-dropping fly-fishing adventures. IF4 consists of films produced by professional filmmakers from all corners of the globe and showcases the passion, lifestyle, and culture of fly fishing. Created by fly anglers for fly anglers, it is the gathering place of the fly-fishing community and a celebration of friendship, fly-fishing stories and stoke.


Among the films with official selection designation status:

  • Caddis Magic, by Capture Adventure Media: a film about the hope that new techniques will yield success, that bugs will hatch and trout will rise.

  • A Fly-fishing Refugee, by Brian Kelly: the story of Mariusz Wroblewski and the discovery of the true reason wild rivers figure so prominently in the pursuit of freedom.

  • Farquhar, by Fly Fishing Nation: For the first time in over a year, a community of anglers visit Farquhar Atoll, one of the most remote Outer Islands of the Seychelles, located in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

  • Home Water, by Ryley Leboe: Home Water follows a professional skier and lifelong outdoorsman as he travels back to his childhood home in search of trophy rainbows.


Others include Out West, a Brian O’Keefe bass odyssey; Casting Maya, Palometa on the fly; A Season in the South, remote rivers of New Zealand; Flat Out, exploring Pacific and Indian Ocean saltwater flats and Into Blue, an adventure for hard-fighting fish off the coast of Northern Australia.
