Friday Fly Fishing Film Festival 10.18.19

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 serve up fourteen videos from destinations around the world, and their are a few unusual ones that aren’t all about action. But don’t worry, there are plenty of scenes of anglers fighting bonefish, trout, taimen, 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 old, but awesome, Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. There are more than 1,250 great videos on the site, and you can search for exactly what you want to see.

  1. The video from the Morice and Bulkley brings back many memories. When you get into a fish there, it’s a thrill. The two bear shots are of Blacks. No Grizzlies, thank goodness. Some people aren’t bothered by Grizzlies but my heart is in my mouth half the time, especially when I’m floating down river and don’t know what I’ll find on the next gravel bar around the corner. The first time I fished the Morice, a man from the US was mauled almost to death early one evening. He lost half his low jaw. But hey, that’s just me. In this video, the fishermen were in a jet boat. Not only does that increase the odds of catching, it also reduces the likelihood of meeting a Grizzly.
