Welcome to a new edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, in which we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available. We have a light selection this week, just ten videos, but there is some great cinematography and editing on display. I think we’re in the late-winter doldrums, as folks in the Northern Hemisphere anticipate spring.
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 in regularly at The Tug, the Orvis online video theater. See you next week with a fresh set of films!
This is a beautifully-made, moody video about fishing for sea-run cutts on an Oregon coastal stream. This is how you make a great video with a GoPro, people.
National Public Lands Day is on September 28, 2013, and here’s the gorgeous video promoting it.
This is just stunning footage of tarpon fishing in Mexico’s Isla Holbox, featuring guide Alejandro “Sandflea” Vega Cruz of the Holbox Tarpon Club.
Winter steelheading in the Pacific Northwest requires that you put in your time, but the rewards are worth it. Sweet soundtrack from The War on Drugs, too.
When you live in Michigan, you can’t let the cold get in the way of good fishing, as our pals from Scientific Anglers demonstrate.
Watch what goes down when five guides, an 11-year-old kid, and a fish junkie join forces to hijack their local trout stream for a day.
Good stuff from the Cowboy State, featuring some nice cutties and a blooper reel at the end.
Here’s a super-dreamy teaser for a pike video from Lithuania, of all places. I totally dig the somber, David Lynchesque feel.
I once spent three days standing on the bow of Marshall Cutchin’s boat and never even cast to a tarpon, as a 30-knot wind blew in my face, so this video infuriates me.
The cold months are the best time to catch big bull redfish, and Ganesh Chatani apparently knows where to find them.
