Welcome to the latest 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 was a bit light on new videos, but we’ve got ten great productions that run the gamut from king salmon in Argentina to sea trout in Sweden. Homegrown videos feature Texas redfish, Colorado browns, and a brief trip down Montana’s iconic Smith River.
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 Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. As of today, there are more than 1,340 great videos on the site!
We kick things off with a cool new video from our pal Trey Mullen in Wyoming, featuring his first floats of the year on the North Platte.
