Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 03.14.14

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 an eclectic selection this week: thirteen videos, featuring some unique perspectives on the sport.

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!

Truth and beauty. Plus gorgeous images of the Deschutes River.

Great stuff, as we’ve come to expect, from Lowcountry Journal’s Doug Rowland. Short and sweet, but making the redfish flats look so good.

Here’s a gorgeous video from Tørt Fly Fishing, a new collaborative from Norway. The super slo-mo action gives the whole thing a cool, dreamy feel.

Moldy Chum’s Brian Bennet went to Kiritimati and all we got was this lousy video. Actually, it’s a pretty darned cool video, a collection of short snippets artfully arranged.

Pyramid Lake, in western Nevada, is known for its huge Lahontan cutthroats, and there are some beauties on display here in a video that captures the stark beauty of the place.

Forty-seven seconds of topwater bass strikes (Australian bass, that is) are enough to make an angler dream of summer.

Our pal Rolf Nylinder of Frontsidefly is clearly fascinated by the antics of his fishing buddy, so he made this quirky video about it.

There’s some serious shaky cam going on in this video from New Zealand, but the fish and the overall vibe make up for it.

The Italian anglers behind Fly Fishing Adventures capture the essence of small-stream fishing here. Things aren’t much different here in Vermont.

We don’t get a lot of videos from “M-I-crooked letter-crooked letter-I-crooked letter-crooked letter-I humpback-humpback-I,” and there’s plenty of redfish action here to hold your interest. There’s also some not-so-great fish handling, though.

A well-piloted quadcopter offers a cool perspective on the places that fly fishing takes us.

There are no fish here, just beautiful shots of an elegant fly caster. This is what they mean when folks call casting an art.

Here’s Episode 1 of GEOBASS, which takes place on one of the most hostile waterways of Colombia. From deadly snakes to killer bugs to the ravages of the jungle, these guys are suffering for their art. . .and by art, I mean bass fishing.
