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’ve got a ton of homegrown videos, featuring great fly-fishing opportunities throughout the U.S. of A. But don’t worry, you’ll also be transported to Christmas Island, South America, and Lesotho.
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 exactly 1,429 great videos on the site!
