A Few 2023 IF4 Festival Highlights and Descriptions:

Father Nature

The Turner family has guided the Snake River in Grand Teton National Park for over a 100 years. Like all of us who go to the river and mountains with fly rod in hand, it's hard to come back the same person. Wild places forever change us - imbedding a deep and spiritual reverence for things greater than ourselves. This western idea was the underpinnings to one of America’s best inventions - the National Park System. This is their story - a family’s blessing to work, live, and share one of the most beautiful river corridors anywhere in the world. A gift that has instilled an even greater passion to protect things “wild” for many generations to come. Filmmaker: Love Affair Creative
Over the last 20 years, a steady stream of adventurous anglers has been traveling to some of the most remote places on the planet in search of big predatory fish called giant trevally or GTs. Decades of advancements in gear and collective knowledge have made it possible for anglers to take on these aggressive fish, catapulting them into the media limelight, and now they’re taking the angling world by storm. But, what if you didn’t have to travel to the most remote locations in the world to chase fish like this? What if we told you a similar species haunts many saltwater destinations around North America? In this short film, we take you on a comparative deep-dive into a truly remarkable species just as noteworthy. Welcome to the world of JACKS. Filmmaker: Jako Lucas and RA Beattie
The Slam That Saves
Deep in the foothills of the Appalachians, there are four species of bass found nowhere else on Earth. The Coosa, Cahaba, Warrior, and Tallapoosa bass are all genetically-distinct, environmentally-imperiled bass in dire need of help. And thankfully, a community has rallied around them with a unique idea. Instead of gating off the species, why not champion them? Why not create a new grand slam in fly fishing for the sake of a national treasure? Join Matt Lewis and Mary Beth Meeks as they attempt to catch a “Redeye Slam” in one day. Filmmaker: Dorsal Outdoors
Gold Fever
In 2022, an epic adventure from Black Fly Eyes to explore undiscovered water in the middle of the Amazon jungle. In the "Serranía Moseten" region of Bolivia there are numerous tributaries that have never seen a fly. These waters are pure and this fly-fishing film documents an exploratory adventure to fish for the powerful golden dorado.
