Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 05.11.18


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 was not a banner week, but we still managed to round up eleven videos that will help you daydream about casting for trout, tarpon, bonefish, and smallmouth bass in some glorious locations.

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 exactly 1,435 great videos on the site!
