Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 05.21.21

Welcome to an all new edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival! Every week, we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available and then serve them up for you to enjoy. This week, we’ve got ten great videos–mostly trout-focused and from the U.S. and Canada–but the ways the stories are told differ wildly. And if you don’t smile watching five-year-old Gus landing a fish by himself, then I don’t know what will make you smile.

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.

The Cowboy State is an angler’s playground, as this great video makes clear.
