Welcome to another Friday the 13th edition of the Friday Film

Festival. (Watch out for that guy on the marquee; he looks like a bait dunker.) My intros are short because I’m out in Missoula, Montana, at the

Orvis Western Guide Rendezvous with a couple hundred of my best fishing

buddies. So enjoy this week’s selection. Remember, we surf so you don’t have

to. But if you do stumble upon something great that you think is worthy of

inclusion in a future FFF, please post it in the comments below. See you

next week with a fresh set of films!

Montana Hopper Assault 2011 – Prairie

Stream 1 – vol. 1 from sweetmal1 on Vimeo.

Can you sense that

the warm days of summer are coming? Here’s some sweet hopper action to fuel

those daydreams.

Permit in Belize from Helge Dahlen on Vimeo.

I still haven’t

caught a permit, and videos such as this one make that hurt even more.

Labrador Lake Trout from Tightline Productions on Vimeo.

From our friends at

Tightline Productions comes this cool video of Orvis’s Jim Lepage catching a

ridiculous lake trout on a 5-weight rod. His reaction says it all.

This video has a little bit of

everything (warning: including a few f-bombs), and it will get you pumped up

for all the great fishing to come over the next six months.

Flats of the Third Coast from FP Media on Vimeo.

Big-lip golden bones

and a story about the the ability of wind to drive a man insane.

Here’s one great reason to head

to Russia: killer Atlantic salmon fishing on the Umba River.

Bull Trout Fly Fishing in the Pacific

Northwest from Dryft on Vimeo.

I fished the Blackfoot

yesterday, hoping to see a bull trout. We didn’t catch one, so this video

will have to do.

Reel Men Productions: The North Shore

Diaries from Storm Carroll

on Vimeo.

Here’s some

great footage from a film in production called “The North Shore Diaries.”

Looks like this one’s gonna be good.

Add another country to the FFF

“life list”: Oman, on the Ariabian Peninsula, where they apparently have

permit. Who knew?

Small Stream, Big Trout: Part Two from

Jason du Pont on Vimeo.

More great Montana

action from Jason du Pont and friends.

Good times on New Zealand’s South

Island, featuring some gorgeous brown trout, of course.

A Pesca con la Neve from FLY FISHING ADVENTURES on Vimeo.

This isn’t the

greatest video, but it features one of the coolest-looking brown trout ever.

At first I thought the brilliant red was an added special effect, but I

can’t see how that would be possible.

Here’s the latest edition of

“The New Fly Fisher,” featuring Tom Rosenbauer on the Restigouche River.

Good stuff. Have a great weekend!
