Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 05.06.16


Written by: Phil Monahan

Welcome the latest edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, in which we feature the best videos from around the world. It’s our third week in a row featuring thirteen videos, which might set off a case of triskaidekaphobia in some of you, for which I apologize. This week’s selection is has a little bit of everything, from trout in New Zealand to permit on Belize, from the high Spanish Pyrenees to the lowlands of western Florida.

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 1,150 great videos on the site!

See you next week with a fresh set of films!


We kick things off with a li’l bit o’ stoke from the F3T.


Some Florida saltwater boys head north to chase trout in the mountains of North Georgia in this great video from Estrada Art Films.


This is a wonderful video about fishing for permit off the coast of Southern Belize with legendary fly fishing guide Lincoln Westby.


Spring fishing in Utah looks pretty darned good in this video from fishiki fly fishing.


Check out this trailer for “Guide Series: Southern Tour,” which introduces you to some of the Southeast’s most talented fly fishing guides and explores the incredible fisheries they perfect their craft in.


I’ve long been telling folks that the Spanish Pyrenees is an amazing fly-fishing destination, and it looks like these guys have discovered it.


Great stuff from New Zealand: the somewhat amateurish camerawork is more than made-up for by stunning trout and gorgeous locations.


You know how I love to watch the young’uns fish, and these kids hike into Great Smoky Mountains National Park to do some bluelining for wild brookies.


Here’s a beautiful, ruminative look at the joys of fly fishing for redfish in the marshes of Florida.


This video from Poland is a beautiful look at a day on the water for a father and his son.


Did I just see some stop-motion claymation in a fly-fishing video? Here’s a great short from Australia about why we need to fish.


Just a lovely minute’s-worth of fly fishing for wild trout in the Old World, on the River Guash in the English Midlands.


Finally, here’s a cool, moody piece from Norway about fishing a big hatch on still water. Enjoy!

    Phil/Orvis,
    I just released (today) a new short (3 min. 30 sec.) fly fishing film. I would love for the film to be featured in the Orvis Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival! I also recently released a full length (19 min.) film. I have attached the links (YouTube) below for your consideration.
