Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 12.29.17


Welcome to the final edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival for 2017, in which we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available. This week, we’ve got fourteen films that will take you around the world to experience some incredible destinations–from the southern Andes to far northern Sweden, and from that waters off Dubai to The Bahamas. Maybe one of these videos will cause you to make a New Year’s resolution . . . .

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 Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. As of today, there are exactly 1,429 great videos on the site!

  1. I love Orvis and the FFF, but please stop promoting countries who totally screw with our democratic process. Russia, really?
