For two full days, starting November 7th, Bonefish and Tarpon Trust will host their 5th International Symposium at the IGFA Hall of Fame and Museum in Dania Beach, FL. This year’s event will feature science presentations packed with the latest science developments from the world’s top tarpon, bonefish, and permit biologists.
There will be a number of clinics and demonstrations for attendees to enjoy including a light tackle casting clinic from C.A. Richardson, the star of Flats Class TV, a tarpon clinic hosted by world class angler Andy Mill, a fly tying demonstration with Enrico Puglisi, and a photography clinic with renowned photographer Pat Ford. Throughout the two days there will also be panel discussions with some of today’s most knowledgeable fishing guides from around the world, trading insight and stories about bonefish, tarpon, and permit.
Friday evening’s entertainment will come in the way of the inaugural BTT Art and Film Festival where some of the biggest names in saltwater art and photography will be on hand to display their work. Attendees will have a chance to purchase pieces directly from the artists with portions of the proceeds benefiting Bonefish and Tarpon Trust.
The festival will also feature films showcasing our favorite inshore flats fish. BTT is now accepting short film submissions from the public for a chance to be shown during the festival. Films must be roughly 5 minutes in length and content should focus on inshore flats species.
