Drake Publisher Buys Film Tour

The news is out, Tom Bie publisher of the Drake magazine and two partners have purchased the Fly Fishing Film tour. The tour's future was in question due to the departure of AEG media guys earlier this year. From Tom's blog post via the Drake site:
As of this week, two partners and I bought the Flyfishing Film Tour from owners Terry Wolvert and Jim Crystal, ensuring that the tour will go on, with only a slightly delayed front-end schedule.
The tour will be called The Drake Flyfishing Film Tour, as my partners and I did not acquire the name AEG. Other than that, the most substantial change to the tour is that the filmmakers will take a share of the profits, based on a model that the Banff Film Tour has been using for years.
