Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 05.10.13

Welcome to a new edition of the OrvisNews.com Friday Film Festival, in which we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing footage available. 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 FFF, please post it in the comments below. And don’t forget to check in regularly at The Tug, the Orvis online video theatre. See you next week with a fresh set of films!

We kick things off with a low-tech video that really captures the joy of fly fishing, without the trophy trout or exotic destinations.

 

WhereWiseMenFish in Cuba from Justin Maxwell Stuart on Vimeo.

Some great saltwater action from Cuba, where they seem to have plenty of tarpon and bonefish.

 

 

From the Caribbean, we head across the Pond to Croatia, and I dig the underwater shots in this one.

 


Sweet summer dreams

Stunning shots of surface-feeding New Zealand trout here.

 


Winter Snacks
from Nicholas Kneipp on Vimeo.

I just can’t get enough of these Murray cod videos. Just look at the bend in that 10-weight!

 


Transition
from Stinky Waders on Vimeo.

I like a video with a good story, and these are some of the more beautiful rainbows you’ll ever see.

 


The Ark
from CricksCo on Vimeo.

This video might be a little too much for some of you, but I appreciate the editor’s effort to try something new.

 


Does it Get Any Better?
from My Leaky Waders on Vimeo.

One man, a tiny Blue Ridge stream, and a Tenkara rod. Those are some sweet little brookies.

 

 

This is just an iPhone video, but it’s the sound effects that really get me.

 


Fish and Whistle
from Will Cardamone on Vimeo.

A group of friends rocking Colorado’s Roaring Fork in Mid April.

 


By The Lake, Tasmania.
from Betty Wants In on Vimeo.
 

I have fished in Tasmania, and this is a great story of one man’s life on the shores of a trout lake there.

 


HARRY
from SHALLOW WATER EXPEDITIONS on Vimeo.

This is really an ad for a boat company, but I love the history of Harry, and the cinematography is gorgeous.

 

 

We finish up with another great episode of The New Fly Fisher, in which Colin  travel to Algoma Country (Northern Ontario) to fly fish for big smallmouth bass.  Have a great weekend!
