Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 06.14.19

Welcome to the another edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival! Each week, we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available and then serve them up for you to enjoy. This week, we feature fourteen productions that will take you from New Zealand to Norway, and from Florida to British Columbia. Plus, you’ll be introduced to a couple of species you may never have heard of before.

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 old, but awesome, Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. There are more than 1,250 great videos on the site!

We kick things off with highlights from the Black Fin crew as they look for the world’s best fly fishing adventures. The guys travel to Argentina, Iceland, the Arctic, Alberta, Slovenia, Alaska and the Western U.S .
