Welcome to another special Monday mini version of the F5. As I wrote on Friday, I found too many great videos to cram into a single post, so here are eight great leftovers. 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 on Friday with a fresh set of films!
Devan Ence and his wife headed to Puerto Rico for their anniversary and got some fishing in, too. The result is some sweet footage from a place that most of us don’t consider a major fly-fishing destination.
Here’s some small-stream wintertime goodness from Colorado. It features some seriously questionable netting skills, but a beautiful rainbow for all the angler’s troubles. You also get to see some behind-the-scenes footage of the filming process to give you a sense of what it takes to make on of these things.
More Montana goodness from photographer Tracy Moore, as we spend a day nymphing the Bighorn for browns and rainbows. This one kicks off with a wicked cool non-fishing sequence and then puts you right in the drift boat. (Warning: the lyrics of the soundtrack contain at least one f-bomb. Sometimes I wonder about the thought process of choosing the music for a fly-fishing video.)
Kind of hard to argue with the soundtrack choice on this one, though, as Capt. Chris Wilson and clients chase redfish to the sounds of the one and only Jimi.
When you hear the word tenkara, you immediately think of England, right? No? Here’s a video from the UK’s first club water dedicated to this style of traditional Japanese fly fishing.
We finish up with a three-part video from Fernando Silva, who combines pretty visuals, pleasant music, and small-stream trout. Here’s Part I. Enjoy, and hope this helps get your week off to a good start.
