Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 06.05.15

Welcome to our latest edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, featuring the best videos from around the world. This week, we have sixteen videos, with tons of trout and a few exotics, such as roosterfish and peacock bass. Scandinavia represents pretty hard, as well.

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 all-new, improved Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. As of today, there are now 689 great videos on the site!

See you next week with a fresh set of films!


We kick things off with a really beautiful trailer from Brothers on the Fly, who headed to Italy for their latest adventure.


British Columbia’s Thompson River not only features one of the last remaining wild-steelhead fisheries, but the landscape is drop-dead stunning, as well.


This is the best video about fishing for seatrout we’ve seen so far, from the west coast of Sweden, with beautiful camerawork and some really nice fish.


The quest for permit has consumed many an angler, and this video features a cool story and great images from Los Roques in Venezuela. Click the CC button for English subtitles.


Check out this sweet, and pretty rare, Soca River brown trout caught by a couple of Americans in Slovenia. Browns don’t normally live in this part of the river, apparently.


Hawaii is not just for beaches and volcanoes, you know. They’ve got some great bonefish waters, as well.


This videos isn’t of the highest quality, but it features some great tarpon and ‘cuda action from Cuba.


Here’s a cool trailer for an upcoming video about peacock-bass fishing in Colombia, which looks pretty hardcore.


Here’s another great shorty from young Max Rhulen, as he fishes the Colorado River last weekend.


More great seatrout action from Scandinavia, this time from Norway and featuring wonderful light and cinematography.


Chase and Aimee are about to head off on a big fly-fishing road trip, but first they thought they’d test their new camera. Aimee has a pretty sweet cast.


It looks like Hooke isn’t the only game in town when it comes to Quebecois filmmakers. You can skip the French-spoken bits, but stick around for the gorgeous pike at the end.


Most fly fishing videos focus on anglers, but here’s one that offers a look at what a guide does all day on a float trip. You’ll notice that he doesn’t fish.


Thirty seconds of golden-dorado action will get your heart pumping, and it’s in the service of conserving these great game fish.


We’ve posted about Sisters on the Fly before, and here’s a cool look at how one woman got involved.


Here’s a fun look at a group trip to Mexico’s East Cape for roosterfish, and it includes plenty of other fishes and critters, as well.

  1. Aimee and Chase: Thank you for the premium-quality “test vid” from your new equipment. If that was a “test”, the actual documentary series will be epic. Your creative drive is inspiring.

    I look for your posts on the Orvis blog each week, as your quality is technically solid …..and your unique approach to recording fishing situations reminds of younger days in north-central Pennsyltucky and Connecticut.

    Good fortune and tight lines to you both!

  2. Great selection this week Phil, really enjoyed the Permitmanico and the the peacock bass bit.
