On Feb. 11, the Sanibel Fly-Fishers Club hosted the first SW Florida showing of the Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T), an international collection of amazing fly fishing short films now in its 12th year.

The event, held at the Sanibel Community House with more than 200 in attendance, was a benefit for Captains For Clean Water. Nearly $10,000 was raised for Captains and other causes. Nearly 30 local businesses, artists, residents, and fishing guides donated items for a silent auction and raffle. Sanibel Fly-Fishers is planning to host the event again next year as their major annual fundraising event. For more information, follow the club at www.facebook.com/sanibelflyfishers.
