Welcome to an all-new 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 baker’s dozen great productions, from the far-flung corners of the globe and across the U.S.: From New Zealand’s backcountry rivers to the yellow fish waters of South Africa, and the tarpon flats of Florida to the trout streams of Utah.
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.

Fun to watch these. Thanks
A comment “BOKONG HOME POOL – Fly Fishing In Lesotho for Yellowfish.” On the title screen, it is a face of a person of color, presumably a native of Lesotho. However, the entire video, although otherwise pleasant enough, does not have one face other than the white guide, who is credited at the end. Given that you have the black face as the lead-in, I think you ought to give more attention to the rest of the film, and what it contains. FWIW.
I’m going to have to put forward a video for F5 that I filmed myself in April 2021 that was based on an urban river in my home city of London, UK. This was my second ever video and features a young lady who only took up flyfishing this year.
Shaky camera work aside the content I captured was very unique for the fly fishing world, a working class lady catching trout from a London stream (contrasting with the dominance of idyllic remote locations often captured in flyfishing videos).
Or simply type “Maybe It’s Because I’m A Londoner: a flyfisher-woman’s tale” into YouTube.
