Welcome to another edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, in which we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available. Perhaps as a hangover from the holiday weekend, the selection was a bit meagerespecially on the salty side of thingsbut we’ve got a cool dozen videos for you. From New Zealand to Lapland, from the Lowcountry to the Rockies, there’s something to please any fly-fishing taste.
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 in regularly at The Tug, the Orvis online video theater. See you next week with a fresh set of films!
