The Breckenridge Fly Fishing Film Tour hosts the annual ‘Fly Fishing Film Tour,’ or similar events, to be held in Summit and Park counties, and the surrounding region in Colorado. The BreckF3T annually presents the national Fly Fishing Film Tour as a community fundraiser to benefit non-profit organizations using and protecting our watersheds to enable rehabilitation of others and provide education and outdoor opportunities for underserved communities through fly fishing and related activities. The BreckF3T will organize events to achieve those goals and additionally create community, inspire, encourage others, and support conservation efforts.

Who: Fly Fisher. Tele skier. Realtor. Alzheimer’s Association Champion. Crazy about digging clams for dinner, old farm trucks, and fishing off the beaten path.
Who - An outdoor enthusiast, Veteran spouse, mother, and beginner fly fisherwoman with a passion for making a difference in my community.
Why - My husband served 12 years in the Marine Corps and was wounded by an IED. He found recovery through snowboarding, and then fly fishing... mostly thanks to Project Healing Waters CO Alpine Chapter. Anything to help the PHWFF organization - I'm in! Fly fishing has become a source of fun and togetherness in my family. I've worked with outdoor/adventure films for 17 years, and so my passion for film also plays into my interest in being a part of this organization. Putting on an impactful night of film solely to benefit three amazing organizations in my community is something I am so grateful for.
