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 is our second week in a row without a real stand-out favorite, but there’s certainly plenty of cool action and some great video work to enjoy. Below is a baker’s dozen productions that will take you from New South Wales to Pennsylvania, and from Georgia to Swedish Lapland. We got fresh, salt, and warm water. What else could you need?
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!
We kick things off with a brief profile of Pennsylvania guide Neil Sunday, who talks about his love for his local waters.
Our friends at Hooké have just published a bunch of trailers for their French-language TV show. This one (in English) features a trip to Swedish Lapland.
This is basically an ad for a guide service, but it’s also a cool look at fly-fishing for false albacore off North Carolina.
A day on Utah’s Upper Provo River . . .
Have you ever heard of “tarpon diving”? It’s a great new sport that all the cool kids are into. BTW, Cuba is in North America. (Warning: a bit of salty language)
Our pal Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions recently got back from Argentina and put together this short video about some spring-creek action.
Salty goodness from Mexico, featuring crevalle jacks, roosterfish, and little tunas.
If you love release shots of big brownies, you’ll love this entry from Spain (and, I suspect, a couple other European countries).
This is just a bit of fly-fishing eye-candy from the Land Down Under, shot on the Turon River in New South Wales.

You know, I love a fly-fishing video with a unique perspective, but I can’t really figure this out at all. Anyone want to try to interpret this?
Our UK colleagues are embracing 50/50 on the Water, and this news report about a fishing event for women couldn’t feel more English.
Can you catch a trout on an Orvis Practicaster? One crazy Norwegian decided to find out.
