Movies, dining and things to do / Spokane and North Idaho

Enjoy the great outdoors Tuesday at The Bing

The only thing people enjoy nearly as much as outdoor activities are movies about outdoor activities. And for some of us, the movies are even more enjoyable.

Take, for instance, fly fishing. It's been a long time since I stood in a stream and cast a fly rod. And, to be honest, I never did get a real feel for it.

Yet I'd go to see a movie about fly fishing. And at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, I'll get the chance. We all will. Because that's when the International Fly Fishing Film Festival will screen at the Bing Crosby Theater.

The two-hour festival boasts film from all over the world, including tales — and this comes from the Seattle International Film Festival website — "from fishing guide fairytales, to serial steelhead semantics, canyon conservation in Colorado, mountain biking for marlin, jumping jaguars and jungle fish in whitewater rapids and the audacious Aussies who explore the largest coastline in the world."
