Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 04.22.16

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, it’s a baker’s dozen productions. It’s a good mix of domestic and international action, with a bit of the tropics thrown in for good measure.

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’ve never kicked off an F5 with a 20-minute video before, but this look at northeastern Iceland is pretty spectacular and even packs an important message about catch-and-release.


The high country of Wyoming serves up some pretty magical locations and cutthroats.


This DIY bonefish trip looks like a blast.


Luke Bannister left the split cane at home and took a glass rod to this beautiful little Welsh stream.


This spring break trip looks way more fun than a week in Panama City.


Beautiful stuff from Slovenia, including some sweet Mediterranean brown trout.


Hey. Who said the guide could fish? Cool redfish action from Florida.


A little late-winter nymphing produces some fine trout in this short video from Pinchedbarb Fly Fishing.

There are some nice trout here, but it’s really all about that hoodie. Wat.


There is a plethora of species, including the cool rainbow bass, in this cool video from Costa Rica.


Steelheaders know well that even a fishless day can be wonderful, and this short video shows how.


We end with a longish (12+ minutes) but well-made video about a day on the Swift River of Massachusetts. Sam Swan has tried to capture the whole day and, through great cinematography and music, manages to do so without it ever dragging.
