Welcome to a new edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, in which we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available. This week, we’ve got another 16 videos, which run the gamut from exciting to dreamy to humorous. The New Zealanders came through in a big way, so you’ve got lots of big, wild browns and rainbows on display. Plus, Tom discusses the finer points of fishing through the ice.
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 in regularly at The Tug, the Orvis online video theater. See you next week with a fresh set of films!
