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 baker’s dozen, heavy on the warmwater fish, especially pike, with some philosophy thrown in for good measure.
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!
