Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 09.01.17

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, our collection includes eleven exciting videos that will take you from the bull-trout rivers of British Columbia, to the fish-filled waters off Dubai, to the summertime rivers of the American Midwest–and plenty of places in between.

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 1,410 great videos on the site!

  1. Very well done! Loved the areas fished and the great cinema photography. Especially loved the shot looking up from under a shore tree with the reflections rippling on the boughs.

  2. I’ve been a loyal Orvis patron since 1990, but I never realized the wealth of information here on the web.
    From Tom Rosenbauers excellent podcasts, to the learning centers huge wealth of information; and all at my fingertips. I usually turn on one of the many excellent podcasts that Tom produces and then I open a few other windows and start sampling all the other information available. I usually end up ordering something in the store and enjoy the entire experience – My new area of interest is fly tying and I look forward to some new fly tying podcasts. Excellent work in all areas – keep it up and thanks.
