Join us next week in Orlando, Florida for another legendary party celebrating the hottest flyfishing films from the past 12 months at The Drake's 11th Annual Flyfishing Video Awards.

The annual "Best Of" event includes multiple categories and nominees, with winners being announced live onstage at the Rosen Plaza Hotel on Wednesday, July 12. Starting at 6 p.m., quench your thirst at the poolside pre-party. Then detour over to Ballroom C, where the big show kicks off at 7 p.m. All awards will be chosen from whatever body of work has been produced during the past year.

Award categories for 2017 include:

Best Fishing, Saltwater
Best Fishing, Freshwater
Best Conservation
Best Story
Best Adventure (exotic, dangerous, far-flung)
Best Cinematography
Best of the Web
Movie of the Year (must have been released after July 2016)

Lastly, we may have a couple "Special" awards that will appear in Orlando. But you’ll have to show up on July 12 to see what those are.
