Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 07.25.14

Welcome to another 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, the pickings were a bit slim, but we’ve got some great stuff: fourteen videos covering a wide variety of species, from trout to sailfish to Murray cod to white suckers.

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 in regularly at The Tug, the Orvis online video theater. See you next week with a fresh set of films!


This is one of the better bass-fishing videos we’ve seen in some time, the work of Mountain Made Media. This time of year, I love fishing topwater patterns on our local lakes, for reasons displayed here.


Wading for bonefish on the flats of The Bahamas looks pretty darned good here, and the drinks at the end look refreshing!


“A Deeper Line” is a new TV series coming next spring, and this short trailer features some pretty gorgeous footage.


When he’s got a day off from guiding clients, Jono Shales heads out to tease up some sails for himself.


Having just fished in southwestern Slovenia, I was fascinated to see this video from a different part of the country.


Good stuff from a flat-calm day off Sarasota, casting for redfish.


Uh. . .that’s a serious cutthroat.


There’s lots of great warmwater action in this video from the Land Down Under. Looks like a blast!


Here’s a cool look at some Atlantic salmon fishing in northern Sweden.


I don’t think we’ve ever had a white-sucker video on the F5, so I had to include this one.


That’s a beautiful snook.


It’s just 30 seconds long, but it’s a very cool shot of a feeding brook trout.


They’re smelly and hard to catch, but they also fight hard and grow big.


Marc Crapo, a.k.a The Beard, takes on a tour of this year’s Hardly Strictly Musky Southern Classic tournament. Just hold on and enjoy the ride.

  1. Excellent selection of material! A little something for everyone. The gar film reminded me of fishing on a slow day for catfish ten years ago. I had a fly rod along just because and in a moment of inspiration decided to practice casting with small black wet fly. I could see them just below the surface. After I caught the first we forgot about catfish.
