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. This week, we offer thirteen videos with a decidedly salty flavor–with redfish, bonefish, jacks, seatrout and snook. There’s also plenty of trout action, and a bit of warmwater exotica.
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. As of today, there are more than 1,385 great videos on the site!
We kick things off with 40 seconds of a rainbow trout just gorging on Tricos . . . and leaving the much larger Callibaetis alone. There’s a pretty good lesson here for anglers.
A group of buddies fishes, jumps, swims, camps, and drives their way across Washington in search of some Westslopes and good times. Sometimes, it’s not all about the fish.
Fly fishing in South Florida looks like an action movie in this video ad for a guide service.
Just a minute’s worth of a day on the Cowichan River on BC’s Vancouver Island.
A lot of things had to come together for this angler to hook up with one of Hawaii’s big bonefish . . . on camera.
There are no fish here, but talk about a gorgeous piece of the world!
Camille Egdorf was lucky enough to be born into a fly-fishing family, and she has forged a remarkable life in a sport dominated by men.
My friend Simon Chu, a native of the South Island of New Zealand, loves nothing more than catching fish. I once took him to my favorite brookie stream in Vermont, and he reacted exactly the same way to a 4-inch native trout as he does here.
Who needs a boat if you’ve got a large, inflatable flamingo? But catching a carp from the flamingo is actually quite a challenge.
Check out this introduction to fly fishing, shot on the banks of the River Itchen in the lovely south of England.
Bowfin in the Okefenokee? It sounds like the start of a joke, but it looks like a very cool experience in this gorgeous video.
In case you missed it earlier in the week, here’s a beautiful look at the country’s best urban trout fishery, and at the movement to preserve it. And a big brownie at the end, to boot.
We finish up with a longish video about fly-fishing the marshes and oyster beds of South Carolina(?) for redfish. The video takes awhile to get going, but there’s plenty of cool topwater action.
