Classic Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 04.24.20

Welcome a classic edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, in which we feature the best videos from around the world. This week, we’ve got 10 videos, mostly from outside the U.S. and featuring a variety of species–from mahseer to marble trout and from redfish to rainbows.

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.

See you next week with a fresh set of films!


We kick things off with a gorgeous video from Iceland’s Fljotáa River that features my friend Ross Purnell of Fly Fisherman Magazine. The scenery, the fish, and the cinematography are stunning.


Alaska’s Alagnak River is justifiably famous for its great fishing, and this video captures the experience of traveling to the Last Frontier and witnessing its majesty.


Our friends from Hooké offer a cool profile of some guides on Alberta’s Bow River, and they discuss what attracts them to the sport and their vocation.

There are some fine redfish in this video from angler Paul Kalman, but I guess he’s looking for something even bigger.

Finally, someone made a decent-quality video about fly-fishing for mahseer in Thailand, something I would love to do.


The Gim River in the central-Swedish province of Jämtland offers big hatches and beautiful trout.

The small mountain streams of Slovenia offer incredible fishing for marble trout, brown trout, rainbow trout, and grayling.


Fly-fishing for Atlantic salmon on Quebec’s Gaspé Pensinsula looks like a blast in this video from HG Productions.

This isn’t the greatest-quality video, but it shows plenty of tarpon action from Cayo Santa Maria in North-Central Cuba.

Finally, here’s an 8-minute video about an expedition to Lapland, where a group of anglers camps out and catches some really beautiful brown trout. Looks like a great trip.

  1. Great show. Paul Kalman and Son, Rudy. Red fishing at the Best, here in Louisiana. Great Video and excellent fly fishing technique. At my age of 91, I well recall Pauls Dad and I, when we started in 1960, the NOBGFC. Paul Dennis was just a young boy, his Dad offered many lessons to youngsters of our members, with the proper handling of Rod, according to the IGFA rules, rigging bait and safety. Yes, those were the days.. I had the Pleasure of serving as President for 30 years.. Un fortunately, Paul (PK) is no longer with us, now fishing with so many former members, that Big Rip in the Sky. May all have a Pleasant and Healthy Easter. Keep a tight line ! <. Tag em! Dutch Prager. Mandeville, La. 70471 3-26-16
