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, there weren’t many great videos to come up on vimeo or youtube, but I did discover the Fly Fishing Film Tour page on CarbonTV, and I’ve included three of those videos here.
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!
We kick things off with a short teaser for a longer upcoming film covering Lake Turkana’s South Island fishery. I don’t really know what’s going on here, but this looks spectacular.
Some killer shallow-water action from Mexico, including snook blowing up on poppers.
Smallmouths seem to be the species of the day, and here’s a great look at the opportunities in Wisconsin for catching bronzebacks.
This is super cool. No fish are caught in this video, which focuses on trout rising to a spinnerfall, but it’s fascinating and completely mesmerizing.
Here’s a great trailer for what looks to be a fantastic film about the saltwater action around Nantucket. The shot of the striper chasing down a fly, eating, and turning is worth the price of admission.
Some sweet action from the mountains of Colorado, and the best end credits I’ve seen in a while.
Speaking of mountains, here’s a cool look at the Telemark Mountains of Norway.
Anglers visit the Agua Negra, or “Blackwater” to fly fish for golden dorado. I think you’ll agree that what they found was pretty spectacular.
Some misty morning redfish action from South Carolina.
This isn’t a great video by any stretch, but how about that double catch? I’ve seen it done with dinks before, but never with two quality browns.
John Gierach makes a trip to the Great Bear Lake lodge in the Northwest Territories to catch big arctic char.
