Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 08.18.17


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. I was on vacation last week, but I’ve made up for it with a collection of sixteen great videos that will take you around the world and to all kinds of waters. The down-home streams of Pennsylvania meet the wild rivers of Patagonia, and the South Pacific bonefish flats meet the marsh grasses of the Southeast.

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. As of today, there are exactly 1,400 great videos on the site!
