Welcome to our latest Friday the 13th edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, in which we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available. (I love trotting out our horror-themed graphic—created by our own James Daley—for these F5s!) This week’s collection features fourteen videos, including some great round-ups of last year’s season on the water.
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 525 killer videos on the site!
See you next week with a fresh set of films!

Technically, this isn’t the best made video, but it sure makes a trip to catch steelies on the Skeena look like a grand adventure.
Great stuff from Cuba, where the permit are apparently sometimes quite stupid.
Carp fishing in Portugal looks awfully beautiful, as opposed to the sometimes urban settings we find in the U.S. (See below.)

The Los Angeles River is where Danny Zuko won a “pink” from Leo, but it’s also a cool place to catch carp near a big city.
A “group of dudes who were born and raised in Montana” put together this video about their adventures on the water. This is 20 minutes long, but pretty entertaining throughout.
