Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 07.17.20

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 we’ve got ten great productions–nine from around North America, and one from Kashmir.

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.

If you’re hungry for more gorgeous films, we’ve created a page where you can find 10 “Orvis Presents” films, which tell amazing stories of the adventure and wonder in Nature. Click here to watch!

  1. The video on the Pitt River in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada, was great. Fishing there is a full day event, given the amount of time it takes you to get on to the river. There is a huge lake to cross and this takes close to 30 minutes. From the head of the lake on its northern shore there is still a fair distance by road before you reach the fishing runs. To attempt this without a guide is almost a waste of time. But once you’re there, oh my, once you are there, it’s a paradise. On a sunny day, you might even be tempted to put your rods down and pick up your camera. This is British Columbia at its finest. You should expect to see bald eagles and from time to time, bears. If you use the services of the Pitt River Lodge, (even if only on a day trip) you will be well treated and charged a fair and competitive rate. And the fishing itself is good. Very good. During salmon season, you may well exhaust your arms by the time the day is over. It’s all catch and release so you won’t be bringing any meat home. Go. Enjoy. Make a memory.
