Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 02.23.18


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 are serving up a cool dozen videos with a globe-trotting theme. From trout in Australia to tarpon the Florida Keys, and from peacock bass in South America to huge brookies in Canada, these locations span the planet.

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 exactly 1,435 great videos on the site!


We kick things off with a great video from Australia’s Snowy Mountains, where a group of anglers sets out to conquer three species in three days: browns, rainbows and brooks.


The crew from Trident Fishing got a lot of fishing done last year. Here’s a montage of their adventures.


One cast, one eat, one Swedish trout. ‘Nuff said.


Chasing tarpon in the Florida Keys means big jumps and bent fly rods.


Jurassic Lake and its tributaries are a land of monster rainbows.


This video’s title doesn’t lie: it’s one minute about catching peacock bass.


An overnight expedition on Argentina’s Collón Cura River looks like a real blast.


Char fishing in western Greenland features an epic landscape and some huge fish.


There’s urban fly fishing, and then there’s the LA River. These guys are chasing city carp with a vengeance.


I dig this short, impressionistic piece about New Hampshire fishing from a group called Eastern Ambitions.


Just about 30 seconds of glorious Patagonian fly-fishing scenery.


Finally, here’s another great episode of “The New Fly Fisher,” this one focused on dry flies and big brook trout in Quebec.

  1. I’m thinking the Pittsburg Tugs video is Pittsburg, NH. Could be wrong but the water and woods look right (fished there my whole life) and Pittsburgh, PA is spelled with an H. Thanks for the vids! Look forward to them every week.

    1. Ha! You are right! I was frantically trying to finish the F5 to get ready for the FB Live, and I totally missed that there was no “h” at the end of Pittsburg. And I’m a Granite Stater myself! Shame on me. Thanks for the heads-up.

  2. Wondered if you’d consider my video of three dudes fly fishing in the Alberta Rockies for your F5 – https://youtu.be/9fr9TGcyMLM
    Three dudes: myself Ryan, my brother Mike, and good friend Richard.
    Thanks for your time and hope you enjoy!! All video editing done on iMovie on my iPhone SE.
