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 13 videos that offer many different perspectives on the sport, as well as a wide variety of locations. From the quiet streams of Scandinavia, to the Colorado backcountry, to the freestoners of New Zealand, it’s a veritable feast for the eyes of any trout lover. But there’s a bit of salt and warmwater to round out the collection, as well.
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.
