Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 03.20.20

Welcome to an all-new 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 baker’s dozen videos, with production values ranging from auteur-level to cell-phone. These videos will help you escape to the far corners of the globe–Australia, Argentina, Swedish Lapland–as well as to some of the more beautiful waters of this great country.

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.

  1. Hey Tom,
    my name’s Maurice from Germany. If you remember, I asked a question for the fly box on saltwater fishing in the Maldives. Well, you responded and gave me valuable tips for my trip I made this past December. Since I had my camera with me and I made a short movie about my trip, I want to show you how it went. Please enjoy!
    I would really appreciate it, if you shared this video in one of your future editions of the OFFFFF.
    Thank you!
