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. Here’s an all-new collection of strange and wonderful videos from around the globe. From the South Pacific to the Pacific Northwest, and from Holland to the Colorado Rockies, there’s a little something for everyone. And don’t miss Tom’s lessons about how to catch pike and musky!

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. And don’t forget to check out our Fourth of July Made-in-the-USA Giveaway!


We kick things off with a cool video from Holland, where an angler chases zander and European pike on a cloudy day. Cool stuff!


It’s winter in New Zealand, so Matt Butler took a trip to chase bonefish on Aitutaki, and it loos like he had a pretty good time exploring the stunning blue water and finding some big fish.


This 35-second film is a teaser in more ways than one. . . .


Sometimes, things just don’t go your way. . .especially when you introduce a camera crew into the mix.


Filming a solo trip can be difficult, but this angler managed to make a good video about his dry-fly fishing for big browns in New Zealand.


Drew from LooknFishy crammed the highlights from a 14-day, 5-state kayak-fishing adventure into this three-minute video, which is fun to watch.


This film from FMAO Productions captures the annual ritual of the trout photographer in his natural habitat.


“Emerger” tells the story of Sergeant Wes Dyer, who was able to find a renewed sense of purpose and peace through fly fishing. The full video will be available on July 4th, 2016.


The high-country lakes of Colorado look magical, but the fish don’t always cooperate. When they do, however, they might not be the fish you were expecting.


From Germany comes this cool video about finsing rising browns on a small stream near town.


Here’s a mellow film about wading the Deschutes and fishing the riffles and eddies.


After about 30 seconds, I was all “Is this it?” By about the one-minute mark I was mesmerized by this video from Austria. Those are some lovely loops.


Here’s the latest episode of “The Orvis Guide to Fly Fishing,” featuring Tom Rosenbauer teaching you how to fish for big, toothy predators. This 22-minutes are full of great tips and cool angling action.

    Great video about catching Pike on the fly. It has been on my bucket list of things to do for awhile. This video would have been rated Superb if I were able to hear all the great advice. Next time cut down the background music volume by several dBs so as not to drown out the spoken words.
