Welcome to the latest 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, we serve up a straight dozen productions from around the world. There’s unbelievable action from Brazil, Norway, New Zealand, and Grand Cayman, plus closere-to-home locations, such as Maine, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
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 Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. As of today, there are more than 1,250 great videos on the site!
We kick things off with a gorgeous short video from Norway, featuring a single angler’s pursiot of trout in a glorious landscape.
CATCH Magazine’s Todd Moen is back with another spectacular video featuring Brian O’Keefe. Here, they chase stunning peacock bass in the jungle of Brazil. Some of the shost of big, colorful bass smashing poppers will take your breath away.
Chasing tarpon in Florida is not for the faint of heart. Killer action from Steve Hall.
The meadows of Slough Creek, in Yellowstone National Park, drew these French anglers for an incredible backcountry adventure.
This story of a father-son trip to New Zealand will warm your heart, and the fishing footage is pretty great, too. Stick around for the boy’s description of sand flies.
More amazing stuff from Norway, this time from Black Fly Eyes. It’s a documentary about a fish that earned its own name, and the video features the kind of wonderful scenery and action mix you’ve come to expect from these guys.
In the middle of nowhere, on New Zealand’s North Island, flow several small jungle creeks holding feisty little rainbow trout.
This is an ad for a guide service, but it’s also a glorious look at the fishing opportunities and scenery around Squamish, British Columbia.
Grand Cayman is not known as a fly-fishing Mecca, but it looks like there are tons of great opportunities to bend a rod.
I’m not in need of a civil enginerr, but if I were, I’d check out this firm.
One family’s fly-fishing and camping adventures throughout Maine make for a pretty fun video, and it’s great to see kids so into the sport.
Finally, here’s a cool video from “The New Fly Fisher,” featuring unbelievable Atlantic salmon action in Labrador. Gorgeous salmon, cool takes, and even a few brook trout!
