Welcome to a new edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, in which we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available. We have a great selection this week, seventeen more videos that will take you to amazing angling destinations.
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 in regularly at The Tug, the Orvis online video theater. See you next week with a fresh set of films!
This is how you make a fly-fishing music video. Gorgeous images, a short song (seemingly sung live around a campfire), and end it with a big trout.
More goodness from the folks at Hooké, who head to far northern Quebec to fish the famed Leaf River for Atlantic salmon.
How do you say, “Holy crap, that is a GIANT tarpon!” in Spanish? Killer footage from Isla Holbox, Mexico.
Fly fishing in the East Midlands of England looks pretty darned good in this video, which has an Old World feel to it.
This video is about two brothers who share a passion for fly fishing, and go to Flamingo in Everglades National Park in pursuit of tailing redfish. And, boy, do they find them.
Located in South Africa, just east of the Lesotho border, Mnweni Cultural and Hiking Centre offers some cool scenery, as well as mountain fly-fishing. Make sure you stick around for the end of the video for a special scene.
Here’s a moody little video shot in the far north of Sweden, where big browns fall for No-Hackle flies under overcast skies.
Good stuff from Prince of Wales Island in southeastern Alaska, where the boys from First Light Gear get into some silvers, sockeyes, rainbows, cutthroats, and Dollies.
There are some astonishing brown trout and a multitude of flying insects in this video from Norwegian filmmaker Torkjel Landås.
Y’all know how I love to see the young’uns out on the water. This video from the Bay State doesn’t have great production values, but the participants are enthusiastic, and there are lots of fish on display.
Just one heap-big redfish from the marshes off Biloxi, M-I-crooked letter-crooked letter-I-crooked letter-crooked letter-I-humpback-humpback-I.
Wanna know where there’s apparently some great mountain brook-trout fishing? Andorra. Where’s Andora, you ask? Squished between France and Spain. You know what else they love there? Marilyn Manson. Go figure.
Here’s a super-trippy video about catching big snook in the surf, featuring a ton of underwater weirdness. Dig it.
We don’t often include instructional videos here in the F5, but where else are you going to learn to set the hook Ninja-style?
If you’ve ever wondered if salmon are “extreme,” this video should provide your answer. Warning, a bit of profanity and seizure-inducing dubstep, but some of the visuals are amazing.
My last day as a guide in Alaska was spent on Moraine Creek in the Bristol Bay region, and this video offers a great look at the incredible web of life that draws salmon, anglers, and bears together for a brief time in late summer.
