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’ve got sixteen great videos which will take you from New Zealand to Finland, and from the Florida Keys to British Columbia. Salt lovers will find plenty to love here, as well. Don’t miss the final video, which is the 20-minute version of “Lac du Mâle” by our friends at Hooké. By now, you’ve probably seen enough of their work to know that this one has epic shots, great music, and some impressive fish.
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 695 great videos on the site!
See you next week with a fresh set of films!
