Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 08.23.19

Welcome to the another edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival! Each week, we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available and then serve them up for you to enjoy. This week, we’ve got fifteen videos, featuring some exotic locales and species, as well as a few down-home waters. From Africa to the South Pacific and from North Carolina, you’ll get to ride along with some great anglers and filmmakers.

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 old, but awesome, Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. There are more than 1,250 great videos on the site!

We kick things off with something that really lives up to the word “epic”: an expedition in search of goliath tigerfish in Africa.

  1. Huge thanks for sharing my video. I had no idea there were big bass in that pond . I was after one pounders, not five pounders. Showed up with a 6 weight Recon and would have felt much better with an 8. Seemed to work out ok in the end though!
