Written by: Phil Monahan

Welcome the latest edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, in which we feature the best videos from around the world. Since yesterday was Christmas, we stayed off the Internet and celebrated with family, but we didn’t want to leave you video junkies hanging. So here’s a day-late F5, featuring a 13 videos to keep the holiday cheer flowing.

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 more than 1,000 great videos on the site!

See you next week with a fresh set of films!

Our only bit of salt in this week’s festival come courtesy of Spooled Reels. It starts with about 40 seconds of cuteness and then gets into some sweet, slo-mo redfish action.

    In the Scandinavian Urban fly-fishing vid, one of those fellas spat in their buddy’s coffee, which I was not cool with. Otherwise, awesome content again!
