Welcome to our latest edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, made up of the best videos from around the world. This week, you’ve got fifteen wonderful videos that feature everything from trout to pike and redfish to salmon.
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 more than 850 great videos on the site!
See you next week with a fresh set of films!
We kick things off with a cool video from Joe Cummings, which he claims was shot during a lunch hour in northwestern Montana. That’s some fine work for such a short amount of time. Really, it’s all in the editing.
From New York’s Adirondack Park comes this gorgeous, ruminative video that really captures the peace of mind found while fishing at dawn.
Although there’s a bit too much talking for my taste, there are also plenty of stunning drone shots and great saltwater-fishing action in this video from Florida’s Charlotte Harbor.
Here’s a fun one from Labrador Productions, in which a group of buddies float through a canyon section of their favorite river, catching some sweet cutthroats along the way.
Norway’s Hemsedal River is a place of natural beauty and big brown trout, and there’s some cool slo-mo action here, as well.
We don’t see a lot of fly-fishing-for-lakers videos, so I always enjoy seeing one, and this film has the added bonus of showcasing the natural beauty of the BWCAW.
One of the coolest things about fishing in the Alps is seeing the Mediterranean brown trout, also known as “striped trout.” This video offers some great shots of these fish.
Exploring small streams in the backcountry is a blast, and these anglers get the most out of some tiny waters.
Here’s a cool one-minute video from Norway that tells the story of a fun train trip to the trout stream.
Just 18 seconds of baby-tarpon action. ‘Nuff said.
Pike on a fly rod is a lot of fun, and these anglers from Denmark pursue toothy critters with a passion.
Casting for seabass on the coast of Brittany in France seems to be a moody affair in this lovely video from 9p#5 Media.
If you love salmon of any kind, you’ll love this stunning tribute to these anadromous fish. Serious eye candy.
There aren’t any fish in this teaser about fishing the flats, but the scenery and the clouds make up for it.
We finish with a long (15-minute) but cool video from Iceland by our friend, Alberto Rey, who had an incredible trip there this summer.
