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. It wasn’t a great crop this week, so the collection offers just eleven videos, although with some new techniques and styles of filmmaking to make things interesting.
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 600 great videos on the site!
See you next week with a fresh set of films!
Our buddy John Van Vleet of Scientific Anglers put together this cool footage from a recent “business” trip to Chile and Argentina.
Here’s some fun footage from the bonefish flats, where the anglers aren’t exactly on point. It’s so cool to see those big schools closing in on the boat.
Special effects in a fly-fishing video? Heck yes! And the scenes of Scandinavian stillwater fishing aren’t bad, either.
Getting it done on Colorado’s Blue River on “a wicked cold and windy afternoon” still looks pretty fun.
Oh my. Gorgeous scenery and big taimen are what make this trip halfway around the world worth it.
Sometimes, things just don’t go your way, which makes it so much sweeter when everything does come together.
This is gorgeous stuff from Atlantic Salmon Reserve on the Russia Kola Peninsula. Never mind the advertising part.
I never get tired of seeing big brown trout caught in the beautiful streams of New Zealand. Do you?
Interviews with a couple of young anglers offer an opportunity to think about why we do what we do.
This is hardly great filmmaking, but it’s cool to see all of these young anglers finding close-to-home, less-than-exotic opportunities to catch fish on flies.
Here’s a remarkable film from German photographer and filmmaker Marcus Sies, shot in Chilean Patagonia and The Patagonian BaseCamp Lodge.
