Welcome the latest edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, in which we feature the best videos from around the world. This week, we have a baker’s dozen productions from the first week of 2016, and they include some great cinematography and stunning fish. From Alaska to New Zealand, and from Florida to Norway, these video capture a wide array of angling experiences.
For best results, watch all videos at full-screen and in high definition. 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 F5, please post it in the comments below, and we’ll take a look.
And don’t forget to check out the awesome all-new, improved Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. As of today, there are more than 1,000 great videos on the site!
See you next week with a fresh set of films!
