Rise – The Fly Fishing Film Festival 2008 will be visiting towns and cities throughout the North Island during September. The festival tour includes shows in Wellington, Palmerston North, Hawkes Bay, Rotorua, Turangi and Tauranga. Now in its third consecutive year the festival promises to deliver more exciting fly fishing adventures from around the globe.

The feature movie for this years show ‘The Search – Tahiti’ is an epic adventure into the South Seas in search of huge bonefish, one of the fastest fish in the sea. Festival organiser Nick Reygaert was a member of the expedition team that hitched rides on local freighter ships to remote atolls in French Polynesia. Although the crew endured plenty of hardships on the adventure they eventually found an uninhabited, paradise island teeming with giant bonefish.

Other features include Fishizzle, a short movie about the trails and tribulations of being an Alaskan fishing guide, which features plenty of big rainbow trout and salmon to keep the freshwater addicts entertained. A section of the recently released Soulfish movie will also be shown and details an adventure into Mongolia in search of the world’s largest trout, the taimen.
