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. Thirteen seems to be a lucky number, and we’ve got a baker’s dozen videos for the second week in a row. There’s a salty flair here, so you flats fanatics will be happy. But trout nuts need not worry: there’s great action from South America to Ohio to Colorado.
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!
