Classic Friday Fly Fishing Film Festival 08.18.23

Editor’s note: I’m on vacation this week, so enjoy a classic version of the F5 to get you pumped up for a weekend on the water!

Welcome to the another edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival! Each week, we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available and then serve them up for you to enjoy. This week, we’ve got eleven videos that capture the wide variety of fly-fishing experiences available around the planet–from hanging on a small stream with your brother in Pennsylvania to helicoptering into the Swedish wilderness.

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.

We kick things off with an absolutely gorgeous film from Jensen Fly Fishing about a small Montana stream above Paradise valley.
The latest release from Todd Moen is about monster sea-run browns at the bottom of South America.
The folks from Estrada Art chase big reds in Louisiana.
Stalking big smallmouths on the flats of Michigan feels more like tropical fly fishing.
Here’s a cool look at casting for trout on a pretty little lake in Scotland.
Cool close-up drone shots of tarpon fishing offer a different perspective.
Searching for golden trout in the eastern Sierra is a small-stream game.
In the middle of the Swedish wilderness, Tjuonajokk is a fly fishing paradise.
These kids are so into the fly-fishing life that it’s inspirational.
Here’s a great film that captures the magic of a day on the water with buddies.
Finally, here’s a full episode of The New Fly Fisher in which they go for a warmwater Grand Slam in northwestern Ontario.

  1. To Carson and Wyatt, Good for you guys. It is great to see young men like you so interesting in fly fishing. Fished spring creek myself wonderful place to fish. Keep it up . Look forward to more of your videos. Thank you and Orvis for sharing your fishing adventures.

    1. Russell, I know Carson and Wyatt will really enjoy reading your comment. The boys have been fishing with me since they were real little, but Carson got us all into fly fishing when he was nine years old. He saw a fly fishing angler on Spring Creek and said, “I want to do that!” Now, fourteen years old, Carson has been teaching his brother Wyatt, twelve years old, all that he knows and wants to share his knowledge and passion for fly fishing with others. The boys have a blast making their films while they are enjoying the outdoors together. We appreciate Orvis sharing their fly fishing journeys. Thanks again for your kind words and tight lines!

  2. Todd Moen’s film about Patagonia’s giant Brown Trout might be the best advertisement for the Orvis Mission rod I could ever imagine. As a proud owner of an 8 weight Mission switch rod, the film is a pleasure to watch.
