Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 08.21.15

Welcome to our latest edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, featuring the best videos from around the world. This week, we’ve got a cool dozen kickin’ videos from some dream destinations, from New Zealand to Finland and from southern bream waters to the rivers of British Columbia.

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 all-new, improved Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. As of today, there are now 836 great videos on the site!

See you next week with a fresh set of films!


We kick things off with a bit of mystery. I don’t know anything about this video—location, angler, etc.—but I love the drone shots and the cool underwater fight sequence.


This 35-second teaser for a film about casting flies at skinny water redfish on the Texas Coast is just gorgeous.


Here’s an excellent trailer for a film that’s supposed to drop today, with plenty of big, backcountry cutties.


Earlier this week, we posted a film by Daniela Misteli about fly-fishing with mouse patterns on the Kamchatka Peninsula, and here’s her latest, about salmon on Russia’s Kola Peninsula.


Fly fishing in Missouri has rarely looked as good as it does in this video, and there’s a little bit of East Coast action thrown in for good measure.


Creek-crawling for bream is one of the best ways to spend a summer day.


From Sweden comes a glorious video that captures the magic of wilderness fishing in just two minutes.


Our old pal troutboynz shows that winter fishing on New Zealand’s North Island can be pretty good, using egg patterns and nymphing techniques.


Here’s the first of a pair of videos called “Polar Opposites.” Here, we see anglers chasing bull trout in the Alberta Rockies, a far cry from the redfish action we can expect in Part II next month.


This video is a little longish, at 9 minutes, but it offers a cool look at the big Atlantic salmon of Finland’s River Kymi.


Sure, it’s shot at a pay-to-play fishery, but the video is cool and the fish are impressive.


We finish up with a great, 11-minute film from Columbus Leth about fly-fishing for king salmon on British Columbia’s Skeena River system. See you next week with another set of films!
