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 offer a super-trouty selection from locations around the country and around the world: from Pennsylvania brown trout to Kamchatka rainbows, from Norwegian sea-run browns to Washington sea-run cutts, and from Driftless Area brook trout to New Zealand browns. In non-trout action, we feature redfish, golden dorado, and mahseer.
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 half a minute of New Zealand magic, in which you can see all the action: angler, fish, spotter, and fly.
