Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 04.29.22

Welcome to a classic 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 offer a baker’s dozen, featuring some exotic destinations and local waters. These videos will take you from South America to Norway, and from Australia to British Columbia, but few things are as affecting as the opening video, about one man’s connection to his local stream in Kentucky.

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.

  1. Regarding the Villalobos video: An excellent production and a joy to watch, with one exception. Holding a fish out of the water to admire it; holding a fish in the palm of one’s hand whereby slime is removed, only serves to threaten the survival of that fish, once it is returned to the water. Just don’t do it, especially if your video is all about preserving nature. Fish can’t breathe when they are out of the water. And fish NEED their slime. I see this all too frequently and the expert fish biologists tell us over and over and over again, not to handle fish this way. We really need to drive this message home.

  2. Enjoyed the video with Frank Moore. God bless him for still being able to fish. Great video.
