Written by: Phil Monahan

Welcome the latest edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, made up of the best videos from around the world. This week, we’ve got fifteen great productions a variety of destinations, from Australia to New Jersey, and from British Columbia to Chile. There’s plenty of saltwater action, as well.

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 972 great videos on the site!

See you next week with a fresh set of films!


We kick things off with the aptly titled “Inspirational Fly Fishing Film,” from Captain Quinn, which focuses on angler Mick Miller, who overcomes incredible obstacles to get on the water.


Here’s the second episode of the Scientific Anglers series “Explore,” in which anglers search on backcountry waters for stunning bull trout. And, boy, do they find them.


Here’s the cool trailer for a film about the incredible fecundity of the ocean off Montauk Light, at the end of New York’s Long Island. Striper, albie, and bluefish blitzes have led to many an angling addiction there.


We posted the trailer for this video a few weeks ago, and here’s the finished product, which makes Australia’s Snowy Mountains seem an angler’s dream. Plus, a man takes on the challenge of teaching his wife how to catch trout on a fly.


You know how I love seeing the young’uns fish, and this kid slays the trout on a New Jersey River in fall. That big one barely fits in the net!


While the title of this video needs some work, there’s no denying that there are some gorgeous trout on display.


South Florida’s urban waterways are full of spectacularly colored game fish, which are available to all anglers, if they know where to look.


The folks from Seamwater offer a gorgeous view of fly fishing in Washington in this short video. The shots of rising trout are worth the price of admission.


A day of fly fishing on the San Juan river in northern New Mexico looks glorious in black and white.


This is the saltwater equivalent of mountain-stream brookie fishing, as these anglers cast to tiny holes in the mangroves in search of baby tarpon.


North Georgia is home to a few private trophy-trout streams, and you’ll see in this video from Livit Films, the trophies are real.


How many of you would be brave enough to post your wife’s snarky commentary on your fly-fishing prowess?


November in Michigan sure looks like a blast in this video from Fly Fish the Mitt.


In this film, Capt. Kyle Staton and Capt. Rhett Ghering team up to catch redfish along Florida’s Nature Coast.


A few years ago, we posted several trailer for this film about a proposed hydroelectric project that would build five massive dams on some of Chile’s most important rivers. Finally, here is the finished 38-minute film, which is well worth your time. Check out the Sin Represas website for more information.
