Welcome to our latest edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, featuring the best videos from around the world. This week, our collection of 11 videos features a li’l bit o’ this, a li’l bit o’ that: from the flats of the Sudan to the freestone streams of Vermont and from the spring creeks of southern Patagonia to one of western Canada’s gems.
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 now 739 great videos on the site!
See you next week with a fresh set of films!

The Upper Paraná is huge water, and it also hold some pretty big golden dorado. This trailer for an upcoming film on the area features some airborne beauties.
The last time the Geobass crew headed to Papua New Guinea, they got beat up pretty bad. Apparently, this just left them wanting more. . . .
Finally, here’s the latest installment of Vermont’s own The Meadows Project, and this episode touches on the ideas of patience, grandeur, and camaraderie.
