 Our Featured Speaker:
Hank Patterson, YOUR Fly Fishing Guide

See him in the IF4™ 2015 film “Sensei” and see him in person!

“Sensei” (Trailer) – Official Selection, IF4™ 2015 from IF4™ on Vimeo.

In the highly anticipated film “Sensei”, Fly Fusion’s steelhead editor, April Vokey, teaches fly-fishing sensation, Hank Patterson, how to Spey cast for steelhead. Hank is a “quick study” and it’s not long before he’s passing along his newfound casting knowledge to other anglers, whether they’re looking for advice or not. Eventually, Hank transitions into the role of expert and is able to impart his sage advice to April as well. In his travels, Hank reveals many sides: the angler, the student, the teacher, the artist and the philosopher. About the only thing he doesn’t know is if his good looks get in the way of the fly-angling world taking him seriously.
