Welcome to the 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, we serve up an even dozen films to inspire and entertain. From Florida to arctic Alaska, and from New Zealand to Bosnia, these scenes of anglers, fish, and incredible landscapes will hopefully help you forget that your local stream may be frozen over. Don’t miss the quiz question below film #1 or the powerful message in film #12.
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 Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. As of today, there are exactly 1,435 great videos on the site!
