Welcome to a delayed edition of the OrvisNews.com Friday Film Festival, in which we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing footage available. This week’s collection has a seriously European feel, featuring entries from France, Norway, Germany, and Slovenia. 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. And don’t forget to check in regularly at The Tug, the Orvis online video theatre. See you next week with a fresh set of films!
