Welcome the latest edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, in which we feature the best videos from around the world. This wasn’t a banner week, with few submissions from the Southern Hemisphere, but we’ve still got 10 great videos from such exotic locales as Malasia, Cape Horn, and the Good ‘Ol US of A.
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 1,090 great videos on the site!
See you next week with a fresh set of films!
We kick things off with 41 seconds of summertime fishing, which looks great given that it was two below here this morning.
Conway Bowman explains his love of fly-fishing for largemouth bass and catches a few California beauties along the way.
Just listen and watch that reel scream as a sailfish takes off on its initial run. I actually started giggling. Cool stuff from the waters off Malaysia.
Did you know that there’s great trout fishing south of Tierra del Fuego? Here’s some cool footage from a helicopter trip to Navarino Island, Cape Horn. You might be surprised by some of the species they catch, too.
Northern Spain is one of the unheralded fly-fishing destinations of Europe, and this video does a great job of showcasing the region. Note: Please don’t put fish on the ground.
Broc Oliver had plenty of good days fly-fishing for pike with his friends. . .in France, I believe. I love the underwater shots of the flies they are using.
Wrapping up last year, the anglers from Where the River Runs showcase some of their best days in New Mexico. Quote of the day: “That is a sick rainbow.”
We don’t get enough bluegill videos for my taste, so here’s a little GoPro footage of a fun evening last September in Northern California.
More summertime bass goodness, this time from somewhere in Canada.
This is long (more than 14 minutes), but the initial sequence of trying to solve the problem of a rising fish is worth a watch. It’s a situation we’re all familiar with, from the frustration to the triumph.
