Welcome to our latest edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, featuring the best videos from around the world. This week, the Scandinavians have taken over, producing six of our fifteen videos. The visuals on some of these are simply stunning, featuring northern lights, huge rainbows, and plenty of killer trout. There’s some salty goodness thrown in, 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 694 great videos on the site!
See you next week with a fresh set of films!
