Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 07.20.18


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. I’m back in the office, so this week we have 16 new productions to get your juices flowing in anticipation of the weekend. From golden dorado in Argentina to chum salmon in British Columbia, and from trout in Colorado to Christmas Island geets, there’s something to float your boat.

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.

Costa Rica has trout? Yup, and the mount fishery looks gorgeous in this video.

It’s worth a rainy hike-in when there’s a fish like this at the end of the journey.
