Welcome to another edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, in which we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available. Here are 15 new videos from around the world, featuring tarpon, trout, carp, yellowfish, redfish, and more.
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 all-new, improved Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. Just in the last week, we’ve added even more amazing videos (we’re over 230 videos now), and we’ll be adding more every week. . .forever. There’s no place better to find the best fly-fishing videos.
See you next week with a fresh set of films!
I love it when the people making fly-fishing videos go out on a limb and try new stuff. This baby-tarpon production from SpooledReels is weird yet strangely awesome. I love the way it looks, too.
This one’s for the swingers in the crowd, as the gang from Kast head to the Pacific Northwest in search of steelhead and king salmon.
Fly-fishing for muskies can be a hit-or-miss affair, but it looks like these guys had it wired. The dramatic boat-on-trailer shot is hilarious.
Check out this great action for bull trout and cutthroats in Idaho. There are some sweet fishing dogs featured, as well.
Here’s another fun behind-the-scenes video from the boys at FrontsideFly, who have headed into the wilderness of northern Sweden to battle big trout and unbelievable mosquitoes.
Here’s one minute of video that proves two things: sometimes the fishing for redfish on the Upper Texas Coast is just stupid, and Meredith McCord knows how to get the job done with a fly rod.
Who doesn’t loves brownies? This video from France shows some pretty incredible fish, not the kind you normally think of when someone mentions the land of cheese and wine.
The beautiful, pristine Blackwater River in the interior of British Columbia is the subject of this eight-minute video from Mark Coffey, which features some beautiful shots and underwater footage.
When the flood tide hits the grass, it’s time to chase redfish and sheepshead in northeastern Florida.
Believe it or not, there’s a fishing lodge in South Africa called Hakuna Matata, on the Vaal River. Looks like they’ve got some pretty good fly-fishing for yellowfish there.
I’m not sure why this filmmaker chose the dark filter he did, but there are some beautiful Norwegian salmon here.
Filmed in Idaho, Utah, Montana, and Washington, this one features some pretty fish and one slob rainbow.
Do you think that you can make a functional fly rod out of a stick? CJ Fishnutz aims to find out out.
There’s no fishing in this short video from the flats off Sarasota, but anyone who has ever stood on the bow of a flats boat will appreciate how exciting a scene like this can be.
Marc Crapo knows how to fish and how to have fun, and his videos offer ample proof. Here’s a longish (15+-minute) look at a trip he made south to take part in some serious carp fishing. Good times had by all.
