Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 10.31.14 (Halloween Edition)

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 to get you pumped up for the weekend. So eat a little Halloween candy and get your fish on.

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 280 videos now), and we’ll be adding more every week. . .forever. You could win a Helios 2 just for leaving a comment on The Tug!

See you next week with a fresh set of films!


Here’s some gorgeous footage from Åre River in Sweden. This one really has almost everything there is to love in a fly-fishing video.


One doesn’t normally think of the Virgin Islands as a serious fly-fishing destination, but this tarpon and bonefish action is pretty sweet.


This is effectively a commercial for Tatrofish Films, but it’s also a cool collection of man-and-fish and man-fish-dog shots. I wish my pooch were so accommodating on the river.


When you think “Pacific Northwest,” steelhead is the first fish to come to mind, but there’s a lot more going on in the upper left corner of the USA.


Muskie fishing + Rage = Awesome.


Yes, we promote public water as much as we can, but who wouldn’t jump at the chance to cast on a private pond like this one?


This trailer for an upcoming video by Mountain Made Media features some lousy weather and absolutely gorgeous rainbows.


Regular viewers know that I love me a one-cast-one-fish video, and this one ups the ante with the incredible instantaneous strike.


Here’s a wonderful look at a Casting for Recovery retreat at North Fork Ranch in Colorado. The mission of Casting for Recovery is to enhance the quality of life of women with breast cancer through a unique program that combines breast cancer education and peer support with the therapeutic sport of fly fishing.


Brook trout in Montana? Artist Derek DeYoung put together this video about chasing an Easterner out West.


You gotta love a video that opens with a centerfold shot. The rest of this captures more of the casting and camaraderie experience than the fishing, which is fine by me.


These college students from the northeast head for Maine, in search of wild brook trout. This sure beats a weekend of football and frat parties, in my book.


If anyone embodies “The Quiet Sport” image of fly fishing, it’s Luke Bannister. This small stream in Wales is the stuff from which dreams are made.


This cool shorty from New Zealand features waters in the Western Bay of Plenty region. It’s not the giant-brown vision of NZ you’re accustomed to.


We’ve featured a few videos from the Faroe Islands over the years, and the area has always struck me as mysterious, wild, and remote. Which totally makes me want to go there.

  1. The Casting for recovery video is so right! It IS all about the wonderful things that happen on a trout stream with a bunch of ladies who’ve been through what you have…
    thanks for including it

  2. Love the video from Broken Bow and the Lower Mountain Fork River. It’s a great river and the closest trout fishery I have from east Texas.
