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. Here’s an all-new collection of wonderful videos, eleven productions featuring trout, striped bass, Atlantic salmon, and more. . . including the descendants of Capt. Jack Sparrow.
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 more than 1,190 great videos on the site!
See you next week with a fresh set of films!
We kick things off with a cool teaser for an upcoming web series, “The West is Calling,” highlighting fly fishing as a vehicle to explore the unending landscape of the American West.

Have you ever dreamed of traveling to Africa to cast for toothy tigerfish? This video makes it look like a seriously exotic, exciting adventure.

The location for this video about Atlantic-salmon fishing is described as “up north.” I’m guessing Norway or Sweden. Either way, there are some beautiful fish here.

Venturing into the Golden Trout Wilderness in California, these anglers find great natural beauty and lovely little fish.
Just a quick jaunt down to the local stream in the middle of the day, when a little brown rises to the dry fly.
We’ve posted videos from Greece before, but I always it find it fascinating to see what fly fishing looks like in places where we don’t expect it.
We finish up with a full, 23-minute episode of The New Fly Fisher, in which Mark Melnyk travels to the edge of the Amazon in Brazil to fly fish for a variety of unique and ferocious fish on a fly.
