Movie Night Y’all


Less than a week to go till the first installment of The SCOF Summer Mystery Movie Series. A couple of updates:
  •  The movie is free, but a portion of all bar, food, and vendor proceeds will be donated to the French Broad Riverkeeper for monitoring, improvement, and over all well being of the French Broad River right here in our backyard.
  • The featured vendor for the first installment of movie night will be our good friend Danny Reed of Crooked Creek Holler apparel. He’ll have a table set up with his new spring line of gear and the best thing is you won’t have to pay shipping.
Festivities start at 6, the movie starts at dusk on the trailer. Cascade Lounge will be providing the hooch, and Ron’s Taco Shop will be slinging’ tortillas.
We also have a pretty sick swag raffle for you folks to. Come on down to the Asheville Food Park, and remember to bring your own chair.

It’s The Fall Players Ball, Y’all…I Mean the Fall Tailers Ball…Hootie Hoo?


Come join the Flood Tide Crew, SCOF, Low Country Fly Shop, BadfishTV, and a whole slew of other fine folks at the Palmetto Brewery in Charleston, SC, for the 1st annual Fall Tailers Ball on Wednesday, September 9. And yes, we know it’s a school night, but let’s be honest, when has that ever stopped us?

In addition to the general good times to be had, there will also be The Dog Days Of Summer Film Fest. Check out Flood Tide’s event page here to get all the details. The winners will be screened at the festivities and will be in the next issue of SCOF as the Moving Pictures Department. You got ’til September 1 to submit your video, so get that editing software crackin’. Besides the live music, beer, and videos, we’re gonna raffle off a potpourri of art, rods, trips, organs, and maybe even a bearded man servant, with all proceeds going to Casting For A Cure. Time to put on your big boy pants and get on down to Charleston. She’s gonna be a doozy.


Xplor Trailer: C1 Films

We’ve been following these fellas over on instagram for a while now. Not only is their photography up to snuff, but their video work is down right sick (hint…hint). Here’s a trailer for their new film Xplor. This is one of the most unique story lines we’ve seen in fly fishing film in a while, and we’re pretty excited about seeing the final product.

Big Easy Bound

I am in the middle of the work week and all I can think about is étouffée and bull reds. We head to the bayou next week to film and photograph the saltwater feature for the next issue. The trip is gonna be slightly off the hizzie (I just said that). We’re hanging out with Capt. Gregg Arnold and his crew for the week so I figure it might be appropriate to share with you all what I have been doing this week instead of working…looking up redfish film noir on the vimeo. Enjoy, because I know we will.

…and last but not least some tips from Capt. Gregg for coming down to fish Louisiana. I think I might be getting yelled at…
