Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 10.02.20

Welcome to an all-new 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, we’ve got fourteen glorious videos that will take you from the quiet trout streams of Wales to the crazy blitzes of Montauk, and from the Wyoming backcountry to classic Catskills rivers.

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 a gorgeous little film about solving the dilemma of a rising trout.
This promo for the Catskill Fly Fishing Center & Museum captures the flavor of the region.
This looks like a great film, about the quest to a trout from a boat, on a fly, from the main stem of the Bitterroot River in Western Montana every single month of the year.
This isn’t the greatest quality video, but it offers a very cool snapshot of why Montauk–at the eastern tip of Long Island–is such a magical place.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Luke Bannister, and I’ve missed his quiet calmness.
On the other end of the spectrum is this guy, who can’t contain his astonishment at hooking a huge pike. Warning: language!
This stunning stream is not what I normally picture when I envision fly fishing in Scotland.
I usually don’t like talkie videos, but this one has some cool footage of chasing reds in the grass.
While everyone else is visiting “Game of Thrones” locations, I’d be chasing these beautiful fish.
Just a minute and a half of chasing chinooks in British Columbia.
I dunno what this is for, but it’s awfully pretty.
This is a very well-done self-shot production from Austria.
I always appreciate a video that tries to tell a real fishing story.
Finally, here’s our pal Drew fishing a fantastic backcountry stream.

  1. After years of practicing catch and release its startling to see someone in one of these videos kill and keep trout. Different countries different practises

    1. It’s actually illegal to release a fish that you have caught in Germany as fish are protected against harm like any other animal unless they are being harvested as food.
