Welcome to our latest edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, in which we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available. This week’s collection features 17 videos from around the world, from New Zealand to Norway and from Pennsylvania to Alaska.
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 420 killer videos on the site!
See you next week with a fresh set of films!

This video from The Marls off Abaco Island in The Bahamas has some good bonefish action, but I particularly like the underwater horror shot.
