Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 01.21.22

Welcome to the latest edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival of 2022. Each week, we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available. This week, we’ve got a baker’s dozen productions that run the gamut from the exotic to the homegrown and from from high-end to amateurish. But all are focused on the joy of throwing fur and feathers in hopes of connecting to a fish–whether it’s a six-foot arapaima or a six-inch brook trout.

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.

We kick things off with a cool mini-documentary about fishing for giant arapaima on the fly.

  1. Painted Halos – the video superbly captures the beauty and magic of brook trout in small streams. Adding the old hymn, “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms,” provided the perfect musical accompaniment. And, I don’t mean in a churchy way. It was just good, easy listen’ music.
    More of both, please. Thanks, ya’all.
