Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 10.23.20

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. This week’s eleven videos make up perhaps the most philosophical collection we’ve ever run. We kick things off with the highly recommended “Blood Run.” This one is a big time commitment, and if you can watch it on your TV, it’s well worth it. There are several other videos that offer ruminations on the sport–what it means, how it fits into one’s life, and more. Luckily, there’s also plenty of great fishing action mixed in. So take the time to enjoy the eye candy, and you may expand your mind at the same time.

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 the full, 90-minute film “Blood Run,” featuring our friend Ross Purnell of Fly Fisherman magazine. It’s about an amazing journey, the culture of the Kayapo people, and the mysteries of the Amazon Jungle. And of course, get your fill of surface-smashing grabs from wolf fish and peacocks.

  1. I would like to receive this program every Friday if possible. I am honored you chose one of my videos. That one was produced 4 years ago. They have improved significantly since then. Also a few questions…
    How did you find it?
    Can I send you films for your consideration?

    Best
