Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 02.26.16

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 week, we’ve got sixteen killer productions that will take you to the four corners of the globe: from New Zealand to northern Gemany, and from Tierra del Fuego to northern British Columbia. We’ve also got a plethora of species—both fresh and salty—on display, as well!

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 1,100 great videos on the site!

See you next week with a fresh set of films!

  1. For consideration in a Friday Film Fest:

    We spent a long weekend at Orvis endorsed outfitter in Pittsburgh, NH – Cabins at Lopstick. I used a 4wt superfine glass all weekend – on the smaller stream my brother used a 3wt superfine carbon. Not a ton of action shots, but we managed to get some fish on film.
