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 16 videos will take you from the wintery streams of New Zealand’s North Island to the tropical flats off Islamorada.
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 768 great videos on the site!
See you next week with a fresh set of films!
