Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 10.30.15

Welcome to our latest edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, made up of the best videos from around the world. This week, the day before Halloween, we’ve got a spooky thirteen videos, featuring everything from sea-run trout in Argentina to Low Country redfish to triggerfish caught on the Nubian flats.

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 awesome all-new, improved Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. As of today, there are 919 great videos on the site!

See you next week with a fresh set of films!

We kick things off with a pretty awesome trailer for an upcoming production from Vital Films, featuring a little bit of everything bathed in glorious light.

The stunning rivers of Slovenia’s Soca Valley never looked as good as they do from the air in this cool video from Christopher Weiser. That water. Those fish.

This beautiful short film by Austin Trayser captures a day with fishing guide and former Trout Bum of the Week KynsLee Scott on and around Montana’s Georgetown Lake. As you’ll see, the force is strong with this one.

Typically gorgeous video from Doug Roland, focused on casting to redfish in the Low Country of South Carolina.

Southern Argentina is home to incredible sea-run brown trout, and this sweet video captures the stark landscape, slanting light, and amazing fish.

“Sensei,” the video that combines the talents of Hank Patterson and April Vokey, is now available for download at Vimeo on Demand. You can watch 13-minute film for $4 or buy it for $8.

Here’s one young man who has his priorities straight: should he study more for the SATs or head to the rivers near his home in West Virginia to clear his head?

This looks like a fantastic trip down the Lower Grande Ronde, and it certainly starts off with a bang just three casts in.

Self-shot videos are not easy, and it’s even harder to make one that can hold the viewer’s attention for four minutes, but Philip Steynberg keeps things moving and offers lots of different shots.

From Norway comes this wrap-up of the last two summers fishing some rivers and lakes for brown trout. The desaturated look of the video adds a cool vibe.

We dig supporting new filmmakers, and here are a couple of college kids who are getting in on the game. I’d say they’re off to a good start.

This is one of those “just the fish” videos, but there are some doozies. I’m a little jealous.

We finish up with a great, 16-minute video about chasing saltwater species along Africa’s eastern coast, featuring triggerfish and two species of trevally. Very cool stuff!

    My two buddies and I went down to a great Southern Missouri river this past weekend. I filmed it all on my hobbyist Nikon D3300, so not a big budget production, but we have some nice rainbows on film and scenary I think. Check it out. Would be honored to be featured here.

    1. Alex,

      Great video! I live in KC and my closest fishing buddy is in St. Louis. We’re always looking for like minded people to explore new Ozark water with, so let me know if you’re interested. He has a cabin on Bryany Creek.
