Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 04.08.16

Welcome the latest 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 a baker’s dozen videos, featuring stunning trout in fresh and salt water, as well as tarpon, Murray cod, and gar. Locations range from New Zealand to Poland and from Colorado to a part of Russia you may never have heard of.

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 1,100 great videos on the site!

See you next week with a fresh set of films!


We kick things off with another beautiful video from Norwegian “Reelgirl,” Lotte Aulom, chronicling the best moments of her 2015 fly-fishing experiences. There are plenty of gorgeous fish on display here.


Fly fishing in Poland looks pretty fantastic in this video from the Dunajec River, not far from Kraków, in the southern part of the country.


Here’s a great video on winter fishing in Colorado, a collaboration between Ivan Orsic of Yukon Goes Fishing and photographer Russ Schnitzer.


“Silver Lining” is a film about the fly fishing for tarpon in Key West and the fight to save Key West harbor from dredging by the cruise ship industry. There’s some great fishing footage, but the conservation message is equally important.


Rarely has sea-trout fishing looked as good as it does in this video from Denmark. Stunning cinematography and big fish, too.


Some Swedish anglers headed to New Zealand, and as you might imagine, they caught some ridiculous trout in spectacular settings.


Here’s a cool story about how fly-fishing forged an indelible friendship between two young anglers, completely altering their lives.


Ever since I started doing these F5s, I’ve developed a fascination with Murray cod. Someday, I’ll head to the Land Down Under to catch one.


On the 1st of April each year, the sea-trout season starts on the Swedish west coast. These guys decided to make the experience a blast. . .literally.


This isn’t the greatest-quality video, but it shows a part of the world we’ve never featured before: the Kaliningrad region, the Russian exclave between Poland and Lithuania on the Baltic Sea. They have some sweet little trout rivers there.


Few things beat a week at a remote Alaskan Lodge, and this video really captures all aspects of the experience.


How’d you like to land a fish of that size while wading on a tiny beach? Apparently, you can do that kind of thing in Australia.


Crowsnest Pass crosses the Continental Divide of the Canadian Rockies on the Alberta/British Columbia border, and this video makes the region look mighty attractive and fishy.
