Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 03.06.15

Welcome to our 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’s collection offers a cool dozen videos from Argentina to Norway, from Vermont to Utah.

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 550 killer videos on the site!

See you next week with a fresh set of films!


David Mangum, of Shallow Water Expeditions, is back with another great video about casting for redfish, this time along the foggy North Florida beaches.


This teaser for an upcoming film called “Horizons,” from Forever West Media, takes you from the saltwater flats to the high Rockies in just under a minute.


One man, one pike, one cold and stormy day. I like the atmosphere in this one.


I want to catch a golden dorado very badly, and every video like this one from Argentina just fuels that desire.


This looks like a wonderful program: “The goal of Angler’s Quest on the Hoh River is to work with 18 inner city youth and six veterans of the greater Portland area by introducing the sport of fly fishing, educating and sharing the importance of conservation, navigation, and entomology along the riverbanks.”


One man’s fishing addiction is on diplay in this self-shot video from British Columbia, which features some lovely trout.


The production quality isn’t great here, but I love small-stream and backcountry fishing. This video from Utah offers a taste of both.


Here’s a strange slice-of-life video from the fjords of Norway, including some incredible scenery and a few seatrout.


Here’s two minutes of European pike-fishing craziness, as a few French anglers chase snot rockets at L’ile Vert.


Georgia’s managed fishery on the Soque River is known for its fat trout, and there are plenty on display here.


Here’s a 20-second taste of a project called #BuskaLife, “a campaign that we have started with the hopes to encourage individuals to get out and chase that which their are passionate about.”


Here’s some local action for us in southwestern Vermont, as a group of anglers/conservationists add another installment of their series called “The Meadows Project.” It’s a little talky, but extremely real.

  1. Thanks for the videos. Some are very well done, however why do people have to handle their fish? Can’t they just take a picture with the fish in the net? They could even get a better close-up. They lift the fish out of the net and then squeeze it as it tries to escape. I know this is debatable, but I can’t see any benefit to the fish’s survival or revival by this practice. Thank you.
