Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 01.30.15

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 13 videos (second prime number in a row!) from around the world, with a couple super-shorties that show how to get the job done quickly.

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 470 killer videos on the site!

See you next week with a fresh set of films!


Just because you’ve got a bum leg (from a hard soccer tackle) doesn’t mean you can’t get out for trout. You just have to visit the stream called “The Crutch.”

This might be the shortest video we’ve ever featured, but it sure packs a punch!


A little Australian small-stream trout action reminds us of what we can expect in a few short months from now. . .


The production values aren’t great here, but the shots of redfish smashing surface flies is worth the price of admission.


Here’s a cool, beautifully shot look at European fly-fishing competition, in Wales.


We don’t get too many videos from Little Rhody, and this one captures the atmosphere of the fall blitz.


You ever wonder what it’s really like being a guide? This video gets behind the scenes for a Truckee River angler.


We’ve seen big sharks attack tarpon, but this barracuda strike is impressive!


This is long, but it offers a great look at the flats-fishing opportunities in Cuba.


How bad does your fishing jones need to be for you to head out in Saskatchewan in March to catch whities?


We finish with a very powerful video about the healing powers of fly fishing, for both veterans suffering from PTSD and inner-city kids who struggle with daily life.
