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 14 new videos from around the world, featuring trout, barbel, and all manner of saltwater species.
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. We’re over 300 videos now, and through Sunday you could win a Helios 2 just for leaving a comment on the site!
See you next week with a fresh set of films!
From Florida’s Mosquito Lagoon comes this video of an angling first, a genre I really enjoy.
This is a beautifully shot film about spring fishing in southern Iceland. This short documentary is featured in the new iPad app, Humanity for iPad.
This is a great look at the New England saltwater world through the eyes of guide Capt. Eliot Jenkins.
We don’t get much video from the Balkans, so it was fun to stumble across this sweet piece on grayling fishing in Bosnia dn Herzegovina. The water is simply stunning.
Just about 22 seconds of a cool brown-trout release. The transition from air to water is very well done.
Watch Fly fisher Jasper Pääkkönen chase this salmon through 1km of rapids and then scream “Rock ‘n’ roll!” Good times, people.
More gorgeous stuff from Iceland, featuring some fine brown trout. Click the CC button for English subtitles.

These guys on a fly-fishing trip to Austria seem to be having way too much fun, and there are plenty of beautiful fish, to boot.
Here’s a compelling series of clips from a season in the Southeast, Tennessee and Georgia, with a few nice trout thrown in for good measure.
Head deep into the jungles of Brazil in search of butterfly peacock bass. The beast that the fly angler lands at about 3:10 is impressive, and the scenery and travel footage are fascinating.
We’ve posted several videos of barbel fishing in Spain, but this is far and away the highest production values we’ve seen focused on this interesting warmwater fishery. Some killer dry-fly action here.
This is a longish (12+ minutes) self-shot video of a solo trip into the New Zealand backcountry, and it’s pretty well done, featuring lots of different kinds of scenes and camera angles.
