Friday Fly Fishing Film Festival 10.11.19

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 an even dozen videos that feature a variety of species–from stripers and redfish to trout and steelhead, and from golden dorado and peacock bass to arctic char and false albacore.

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 old, but awesome, Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. There are more than 1,250 great videos on the site!

We kick things off with a truly amazing video from Jensen Fly Fishing. If you ever wondered if Amelia is really as badass as she seems, you’ll get your answer here.
Greenland’s Kangia River is a remarkable arctic-char fishery in an epic setting.
Some Korean anglers find a lot of steelhead action in British Columbia.
Here’s the trailer for an important film about the health of fisheries in the Northeast. Warning: Salty language.
Dave Fason has made a beautiful video about how a rodmaker dreams of the future of his fly rods.
This peacock bass puts up a mighty fight.
Cool drone shots of an angler chasing tailing redfish in South Carolina.
A slo-mo love letter to North Georgia’s Toccoa River.
The Fish or Die crew chase big golden dorado in Bolivia. Skip to 3:34 for the fishing action.
Wilmington, North Carolina fishing guide, Judson Brock, jumps into fall with some albacore, redfish, and spotted trout fishing around Cape Fear.
The video quality isn’t great here, but I am intrigued by this stream in Spain. Accurate casting is a must, and even a breath of wind would make this very difficult.
Finally, here’s a full episode of “The New Fly Fisher,” in which host Colin McKeown chases “coaster” brook trout–potadromous fish that migrate from Lake Superior up the Nipigon River.

  1. Was surprised and disappointed to see fly fishermen using a stringer to keep a fish in The “Beautiful” River video. In my opinion a cruel way to slowly suffocate and kill a fish. I think if you want to keep a fish, kill it quickly and humanely.
