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 serve up a baker’s dozen videos, covering a wide variety of locations and species. From trout in Chilean Patagonia to a saltwater grand slam in the Keys, and from high-country bass to lowcountry redfish. There’s a little bit of something for everyone, including a couple of long films about killer destinations.
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.
