Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 04.17.15

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. Here’s a selection of fourteen great productions with a real Rocky Mountain focus. But there’s also a little salt, a little Europe, and a dose of Argentina.

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!

  1. Living in Northern VA and was fishing the upper Jackson River south west VA. First time out this year. Fished three days starting Thursday. Water was really high but came down Saturday. The activity started picking up. Landed three nice rainbows.
