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 fourteen wonderful videos that feature everything from Australian trout to Danish pike to South Carolina Redfish. The Scandinavians make a big impact here, but there are also videos from Wyoming, New Mexico and Colorado.
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 in the Snowy Mountains of Australia, with a trailer that features a guide taking his wife fly fishing for the first time. After this beautiful adventure, I’ll bet she’s hooked.
Scotland’s wild Hebrides is the scene for this lovely video about chasing Atlantic salmon. If it’s not Scottish. . . .
From Florida’s Mosquito Lagoon comes this kickin’ video about chasing redfish and black drum in shallow water.
The Tislea River of Norway offers up some great dry-fly fishing for brown trout in this one-minute production.
Our pal from Colorado, John Hill, heads north to Wyoming with a friend to enjoy some great backcountry trout action.
I have no idea where this beautiful video was filmed, but I’d love to go there, really soon.
This is a glorious saltwater video from Capt. Taylor Horton of Okatie, South Carolina, featuring great aerial footage and incredible colors.
South Florida is a wonderland for these anglers, as they catch tarpon in the Everglades and snook off Miami.

Colorado’s Fryingpan River is the scene for this quick-and-dirty edit that’s got everything a fly fishing video needs.
Another Danish production starts in dreamy mode and then takes a very strange and humorous turn at the 1:30 mark.
The boys from Team Backcountry take on New Mexico’s San Juan River and catch some lovely rainbows in just half a minute.
This isn’t a fly-fishing video, but the trailer for what looks to be an important conservation video focused on one of the Southeast’s most important fly-fishing rivers.
Finally, here’s the full 23-minute first episode of Fly Fusion, in which Cohosts Jim McClennan and Derek Bird chase Kootenay bull trout. Cool stuff!
