Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 10.30.20

Welcome to our Mischief Night edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, which gives us a chance to use our Halloween-themed header (which I love). 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’ve got eleven fabulous videos that will take you from New Zealand to Maine and from South Africa to British Columbia. There’s plenty of homespun angling here, as well.

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 a great trailer for a film about traveling the world to chase fish with a fly rod.

  1. We are starting to see more grizzly bears on the Squamish now. I never have and I never want to either but the newspapers are making a lot of noise about them. And although the salmon are there, the overall strength of the runs is significantly down. Pink Salmon retention rates are 1/2 of what they used to be. As I write this comment (October 31, 2020), you can’t fish for Chum (or Dog) Salmon. You can fish for Coho (or Silvers) only. But for sure, it’s a lovely river to fish. The scenery alone will knock your socks off. And if you do manage to hook into a Chum, you’re in for a thrilling ride. Occasionally, you get a Steelhead, and we all know what fun that is.
