Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 06.16.17


Written by: Phil Monahan

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. This week, we’ve got a dozen videos that will take you from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Swiss Alps and from the bonefish flats of Cuba to carp flats of Bighorn Lake.

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 more than 1,375 great videos on the site!


We kick things off with a short video from Sweden that captures the magic of the year’s first dry-fly trout. And it’s a beaut.

    I am a big fan of Orvis. My husband and I are interested in wade fishing Canada (no flying) State Parks next year for our 50th Anniversary. Where do we go? Can you give me some direction?

    Dear joy tarta
    Just in replie to your question above. I’m just days away from undertaking what your dreaming of next year.
    The options in Canada are endless it’s tough to know where to start
    The new fly fisher is hands down the best film production company in the world if you want some advise where to fish in Canada check them out. Not only am iI booked this year but I’m returning to Canada because of their work.
    Fly fusion tv have a wonderful series of films that will encourage you to experience bc once again incredible production
    Both those companies regularly feature on The orvis Friday theatre- thanks orvis
