Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 01.27.17


Written by: Phil Monahan

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 feature an even dozen videos, from both cold and warm destinations. The collection takes you from sunny Mexico to frigid Colorado and from New Zealand to Greenland.

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 more than 1,300 great videos on the site!


We kick things off with an amazing wrap-up of the 2016 season from Black Fly Eyes. They are doing things with fly-fishing video that are really pushing the boundaries.


The preview for the F3T in Canada will get your heart pumping, with plenty of action and some stunning landscape shots.


Spotting trout from a bridge can yield big results in New Zealand.


Here’s some hot Mexican tarpon action to warm you up on a cold winter day.


Our old pal Ivan, from Yukon Goes Fishing, shot this cool video of a bunch of fly-shop dudes who took New Years Day off to hit the water for some rest and relaxation after their busy holiday season


Feel free to skip the advertising in the middle of this video, but the incredible scenes of peacock-bass action are worth the effort.


If you enjoy a little moustache wax with your trout fishing, then you’re gonna love this pretty little film from New Zealand.


Can you guess which fish species they’re talking about in this trailer for a film about fishing in the Okefenokee?


Yes, this is an ad for a lodge, but it’s also a cool look at Greenland’s anadromous arctic char and the river they migrate in.


Fly-fishing guide Oliver White takes The Rebel Chef to chase small tarpon near Islamorada. My only question is why do they drive so fast and far only to end up within 50 feet of the truck (1:37-1:40)?


Not all the trout in Argentina are huge, and this small river gives up some beautiful little browns.


We finish up with a beautiful profile of Jake Rogers, a firefighter/paramedic from Park City, Utah, who discusses his love of the sport.

    After watching that BFE reel, I can’t believe I had the nerve to submit my videos for consideration at all. WOW! Beautiful stuff, the kind of shots I don’t even think of trying to get. Then I watched more, still WOW! Thanks for bringing it every week. Will have to work harder to produce something worth watching this year 😉
