Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 12.11.15

Welcome the latest edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, in which we feature the best videos from around the world. This week, we’ve got a baker’s dozen: 13 killer videos from around the world, with a great mix of salt and fresh water and a variety of species.

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 981 great videos on the site!
