Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 08.10.18


Written by: Phil Monahan


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. It was a pretty light week for new productions, but we’ve discovered 10 videos with a decidedly homegrown feel. All but one are from right here in North America, and the focus is one trout, trout, and trout (with a pinch of grayling).

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.

We kick things off with a cool video about the native brook trout of Maine, shot in and around the town of Millinocket

Here’s a gorgeous video from The Flyfish Journal about guide Karlie Roland, who has returned to her home water, the Henrys Fork, to fish with her dad and grandfather and start a new career on the water. Great stuff!

Just 30 seconds of fantastic fall fishing in Fernie. Fun!

Some would argue that fly-fishing is an art. Tenkara USA’s designer, Jeremy Shellhorn, produces a work of art in the middle of a fishing day.

The gang from Roamads brought their pups to the Catskills and created a fun video from the trip. Stick around for the fine brown at the end.

Sweden’s Lofsdalen region gets the rock ‘n’ roll treatment, as this group of buddies chases grayling and brown trout.

Here’s a lovely shortie about fly-fishing the beautiful Wild Rose Country of Alberta, Canada.

Fly fishing has inspired lots of poetry over the years. Here’s a poem by Ben Palpant read over his video of anglers on the St. Joe River.

Central Virginia’s North Moorman’s River is the setting for a family trip to chase brook trout on the fly.

Trout streams are fountains of youth for 86-year-old Joe Humphreys–a man who was born to fly-fish, lives to teach, and strives to pass on a respect for our local waters. check out this great trailer for an upcoming documentary.

    All fine vids, Phil, thank you for your weekly posts!
    Tom Hudson’s link was superb, leading to more linky-linky, “oii – oii” from Sweden! You can get lost in the flow from one P/Q adventure to the next. Superb high-res, composition….. and even some comedy.
