Classic Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 09.24.21


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 a classic collection of a dozen videos that will transport you to cool destinations around the country and around the globe. From trout in Montana to taimen in Mongolia, and from Bahamas bones to Alaska grayling, we’ve got you covered.

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.

We kick things off with this great video about the way people can connect so quickly with the sport of fly fishing, which often turns out to be quite different from what they envisioned it would be.

This is a beautifully made film about California fly-fishing guide Scott Flint, who has built a life on discovering untrammeled spots in the Golden State.

  1. Love the video of Kate Sorenson in just shorts, a tank top, and some Keens with just a rod, some flies, and hemostats. Shows that you can fly fish without all the expensive equipment and still have fun and catch some fish. It was refreshing to see this kind of video and put a “real life/real budget” spin on it for those of us just starting out in fly fishing.

    1. Yep Kate Sorensen’s video hit the mark. Popped the rod in the back of her dusty wagon and drove off as simple as that. I’d like to think that’s how the majority of people fish, angler connected well to her audience. Thanks Kate.
