Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 06.26.20

Welcome to an all-new 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 is perhaps the most international-heavy collections ever, featuring some absolutely wild destinations. In these times of little-to-no travel, it’s a great way to explore some of the myriad opportunities around the globe. So sit back and enjoy this incredible tour.

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.

  1. Aloha.

    Great job with all the film choices! Viewing the creativity is such a welcomed respite from the world. And, thank you for providing this platform for all us creative types to share.

    I’d love to submit a short film we just launched about one man’s life chasing Hawaiian bonefish on the fly on an isolated, little-known island. It’s a heart warming story of struggle, triumph and gratitude surrounding a fly angler late in his life and finding purpose on the Hawaiian flats. The short film is actually part 2 or a continuation of another film—the first part being “Just A Number” which you featured back in July of 2018. However, this new film stands on its own. I hope you’ll take a look.
