Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 02.06.15

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 an even dozen videos from some pretty cool places, such as new Zealand, Colorado, Mexico, and Belgium(!).

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 510 killer videos on the site!

See you next week with a fresh set of films!


We kick things off with some sweet high-country cutthroat fishing from Colorado. Those little, wild fish are simply gorgeous.


This demo reel from FP Media is just a series of quick hits from a bunch of cool destinations, plus there’s an exciting lobster race.


As far as I can tell, this is our first-ever fly-fishing video from Belgium, shot on the Ambleve River. It looks pretty dreamy.


Although the editing here is a little too choppy, it’s a cool look at the great saltwater flats fishery of Los Roques.


Great Smoky Mountains National Park, in western North Carolina, is home to some fine brown-trout fishing and a bunch of elk.


I have never seen such huge grayling come from such a small stream. Shot in the UK somewhere, it’s a trailer for an upcoming production called “In Search of Grey Shadows.”


There’s not a ton of fly-fishing here, but this looks like a spectacular hike-in, paddle-out trip into the New Zealand backcountry.


I think that this video accurately represents the way many of us are feeling these days. . . .


Photographer Matt Jones shot this stunning aerial footage of the flats around Mexico’s Palometa Club. Let’s play “Spot the sea turtle!”


This video takes too long to get going, but it finishes strong, with scenes of anglers hooking and landing beautiful Atlantic salmon from Norway’s Lærdal River.


Here’s a “regular guy” video from Pennsylvania, featuring Spring Creek, the West Branch of the Delaware, and one bug-infested men’s room.


This video features some beautiful brown trout and lovely cinematography. I love me some Scandinavian trout fishing.

  1. Hi there
    Krister Wulff from Sweden here.
    The reason the last film is half an hour long is that some guy stole my video found here:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMVnGScaISI
    and then simply run it two times on the same timeline.
    I would really appreciate if you remove the link from your site Phil.
    Maybe instead link to the original 🙂
    And I might add that the original is quite popular (over 150000 views 🙂
    Besides that. Keep it up,
    Cheers /Krister

    1. Thanks for the heads-up on the video. I have changed the link and the description. I hate youtube thieves, and I’m kicking myself for not sniffing this one out. I’m usually better at it.

  2. Hey wanted to share with you guys this video I put together from a North Carolina Fly Fishing trip. We made it on last week with our 2014 Fish Reel and maybe thought you guys would like our first video from 2015. Thanks

  3. Phil,

    Check out this first person vid of an epic battle with a relentless wild trout in CO.

    Keep up the good work man!

    Tight lines.
