Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 09.18.15

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 a baker’s dozen fascinating videos that feature everything from southern trout to northern grayling to the finest in modern menswear.

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 859 great videos on the site!

See you next week with a fresh set of films!


We kick things off with a gorgeous video from Black Fly Eyes (our Lithuanian friend, Vaidas Uselis), shot on Norway’s famed Rena River. It’s big water, chock-full of huge grayling and some sweet brownies, as well.


A day fishing for Southern Appalachian brook trout (and a few rainbows) plucked from the streams of the Great Smoky Mountains. Warning: fish in the pan.


Some highlights from a trip down to Mexico to fly-fish for tarpon and snook in the mangroves.


Here’s one of those “just the fish” videos, but there’s good variety and some real chunky trout.


This is awesome. That’s all you need to know.


I’m not sure we’ve ever featured a video on catching shoal bass, which are native to the far Southeast. Looks like a blast.


This is a beautiful trailer for a film about fishing the flats for permit. Can’t wait to see the finished product.


This is a fascinating look at a budding fish biologist’s work on Alaskan brook trout. Plus you’ll learn how to make a fly from grass.


Here’s the story of a young woman and her bicycle enjoying casting dry flies on Alberta’s Bow River.


Is this the weirdest or best commercial for a menswear store ever?


Here’s a fast-paced edit from Slovenia, where two friends catch some nice trout and grayling.


This is one of the coolest perspectives on tarpon fishing ever. Check out all those silver kings!


We finish up with the full, 12-minute version of “Ozello,” from Mountain Creative, about about the adventures that await those who venture into the backwaters of Ozello, Florida.

  1. FYI that is BACON in the skillet in the Native Brookies video! Although I have no qualms about responsibly harvesting some of the fish I catch. Thanks for including the video in your line up!
