Warmer temperatures, sunshine and springtime mayfly hatches aren't the only thing that anglers begin to look forward to each year as the calendar turns and winter loosens its grip. This time of year is also when the Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T) is usually in full swing, bringing some of the sport's best short films to small theaters, art and community centers, breweries, fly shops and so on throughout the country. But, with virtually the entire country under stay-at-home orders, a good chunk of this year's tour schedule has unfortunately been postponed.

Last month, the CDC pulled an about-face on its masking guidelines surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. Though the agency initially indicated that masks were not necessary for the general public, since March the CDC has been recommending that individuals that expect to be out in their community in situations where normal social distancing guidelines are difficult to maintain—think trips to the grocery store, pharmacy or post office—wear masks to help reduce the risks of transmitting the coronavirus.

“We’re not gonna turn things around without changing government, because government can make big changes. I mean, if you’ve got a politician who’s running for office, who thinks he’s smarter than 98% of the world’s climate scientists ... they’re crooks or they’re dumb-asses.”

— Yvon Chouinard of Patagonia in the Conservation Hawks film COLD WATERS
