Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 04.15.16

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 another thirteen videos, featuring many different species and quite a bit of salty action. From the Seychelles to the Netherlands, from Key West to Colorado, there’s something here to float your boat.

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 for the awesome trailer for an “Turning Points North,” from RA Beattie and Cpt Jack Films. Well-traveled angler Jeff Currier chases huge pike in the Northwest Territories.

Here’s a beautiful trailer for an upcoming film about Rio Grande cutthroats, among the more gorgeous fish a fly fisher can pursue.

Somalian pirates kept anglers away from Providence Atoll for many years, but you’ll see why saltwater addicts are heading back to these remote waters of the Seychelles.

Finally! A really beautifully shot video about chasing Australia’s Murray cod on the fly. I wanna go!

This pretty and moody video highlights the opportunity to catch beautiful trout on Colorado’s Taylor River.

Ah, the struggle of fly fishing. We’ve all experienced it, and this video helps explain why we bother.

Luck plays a huge role in fly-fishing for tarpon, and this video from the waters off Key West shows just what can happen on the right day.

Care for a little inner-city angling? This video features a couple of anglers experiencing the tug in Ide, a city in the Netherlands.

This drone footage of an angler casting to schools of tarpon is at turns exciting, heartbreaking, and celebratory.

Our friends from Hooké profile a fly shop owner on the Gaspé Pensinsula. Of course, there are amazing shots of salmon taking to the air..

Here’s the latest episode of the new video series “The Field Coffee Diary,” from our old pal Rolf Nylinder. It’s 17 minutes long, but it’s a quirky good time, as the boys head off in search of Baltic salmon.

  1. Phi,

    How do you choose the videos. I would love for one of my full length or shorts to be featured. I look forward to this every Friday.


  2. The Field Coffee Diary was pretty entertaining. Love the line “then it’s just back into the loop again”
    Great job Rolf.
