Live The Stream Film Release Party

Live The Stream Film Release Party

Celebrate the launch of the film Live the Stream at the Filson NYC Flagship.  Joe Humphreys will be in attendance with the cast & crew to talk about the film and show the trailer. Film synopsis below — the feature documentary is available worldwide on November 5. Drinks and appetizers provided.

RSVP required for entry. Please signup for the guestlist HERE.

About the film:

Live the Stream is the inspiring life story of Pennsylvania’s fly fishing legend, Joe Humphreys: a man who was born to fly fish, lives to teach, and strives to impart a respect for our local waters. A visually stunning film, anyone with a pulse can appreciate Joe’s contagious spirit and, at 86-years-young, trout streams are his fountains of youth. This is an emotion-packed adventure and Joe will catch your heart in this powerful tale of tenacity, life and love.

Live The Stream: The Story of Joe Humphreys will be available on www.livethestreamfilm.comiTunes and more platforms
