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 fifteen great productions, with quite a few from Scandinavia. Home bodies will enjoy videos from Wisconsin and Michigan, while lovers of exotic destinations can be transported to Dubai, Argentina, Greenland, and the backcountry of New Zealand.
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.
