Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 07.15.16


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. We’ve eleven great videos this week, including a rare dose of angling humor. There’s also a little salt, a little warm, and a little steel to round out the selection.

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 1,225 great videos on the site!


We kick things off with an educational film, as two Scandinavian anglers—Peter and Frederik—come to America to teach our own Simon Perkins how to fly-fish correctly. Hilarious, with some awesome trout footage, as well.


Some gorgeous footage of fly-fishing for redfish in marshes near New Orleans from photographer Garrett Hughes.

    Here is a short highlight reel of a recent Sweetwater Travel Co. Guide School class in Ft. Smith Montana on the Bighorn. Last summer class of 2016. It starts with carp eating dry flie, and ends with some gorgeous Bighorn browns.
