Welcome to the latest 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 served up a fourteen videos that run the gamut from epic to weird. Destinations range from The Bahamas to Slovakia and from Southern Chile to British Columbia. US-based videos feature Vermont, Alaska, and Michigan.
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.
