Welcome to our Black Friday edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, made up of the best videos from around the world. But, of course, our festival is FREE every week! Below are sixteen of the best videos from around the world, from New Zealand to Austria and from Mexico to the Indian Ocean.
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 all-new, improved Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. As of today, there are 959 great videos on the site!
See you next week with a fresh set of films!
