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’s collection spans the globe, featuring productions from New Zealand, Belize, Sweden, Chile, and several locations right here in the good ol’ U.S. of A. Something for everyone!
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!
