The motivation behind the RISE Festival
In its 12th year, RISE is on a mission to celebrate the diverse world of fly fishing, to connect anglers through shared experience, and to create public awareness of fly fishing’s new dynamic emergence. It’s the biggest kick-off to the fishing season there is!
For many, RISE Fly Fishing Film Festival has become so much more than just going to the cinema. These annual fish-fests have become a true celebration of fly fishing, it’s an excuse to get together with friends and reminisce about the past season as well as look forward to the season to come.
Your feedback is encouraged by us to continue rolling out a better tour each year. Last but not least, we would also like to publicly raise awareness about the central role fly-fishing plays in nature conservation. Without the tireless voluntary work of the clubs and individuals many waters and fish species would be far worse off than they already are.
