Friday Film Festival at Orvisnews.com Featuring the Best Fly Fishing Footage Available

Welcome to another edition of the OrvisNews.com Friday…um…Monday Film Festival. Sorry for the delay, which was caused by a dead laptop. But here are the films you missed, and there are some doozies. 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!

HOTD Trailer from RT on Vimeo.

Here’s a beautiful trailer for a film about Wisconsin’s fabled trout streams by the same team that made “Reverb” about the fly-fishing punk-rock band.

Fly Fishing the Bighorn River in Montana from Tracy Moore on Vimeo.

Here’s a great trip down the Bighorn in winter, featuring gorgeous trout and stark scenery. Plus, strangely, quite a bit of dancing.

The Seychelles should be on every angler’s “bucket list,” and this German video features tons of great action. Super-epic music, as well.

Southern Reds from Andy Villacres on Vimeo.

Speaking of salt water, how about some South Carolina redfishing?

Not every video features brilliant technique and wonderful skill. Here’s one that should look familiar to most of us. Good on this guy for following through to the end, though.

Riding High: A Season on the Fly from The Fly Fishing Film Tour on Vimeo.

Stunning cinematography marks this trailer for one of the films featured in the Fly Fishing Film Tour. Just gorgeous shots of leaping tarpon and angling on the flats.

We frequently feature videos from New Zealand that might offer a slightly unrealistic view of fly fishing in that far-off land. Here’s a much more modest and “average” view, which still seems worth the trip.

Deep Water Cay Buccaneers & Bones 2012 Silver Treasure from Deep Water Cay on Vimeo.

Finally, we end with a full episode of “Buccaneers and Bones,” in which a lot of familiar faces—Brokaw, Kreh, McGuane, and others—fish for bonefish on the flats in The Bahamas and discuss important conservation issues. Have a great weekend!
