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 feature 14 videos with an international flair, with edits from Europe, South America, Mexico, and New Zealand in the mix. There’s plenty of homegrown footage, as well, taking you from the coast of Maine, to the heart of the Rockies, to the Pacific Northwest.
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.
