Final Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival of 2013!


Written by: Phil Monahan

Welcome to a new edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, in which we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available. As you might imagine, the pickings were a little slim this week, what with the holidays and all, but we still have a great selection this week, fifteen videos that will explore the heart of fly fishing and take you to amazing angling destinations.

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 in regularly at The Tug, the Orvis online video theater. See you next week with a fresh set of films!


We kick things off with a cool, impressionistic video from Chile, featuring gorgeous scenery, bugs, and a few sweet trout.


Here’s the story of one giant pike, caught from a float tube on a Finnish lake last week.


A group of anglers fished the Naknek River in King Salmon, Alaska, and produced this killer video, which really captures the experience of traveling to the Last Frontier.


It takes a hardy sort to leave the warmth of the home fires on Christmas Day and chase steelhead on the Pere Marquette. I tip my hat to Steve Fraley and friends.


Bass in Quebec, you say? Mais, oui! These kids look they are having a seriously bon temps.


How to pack an entire redfish story into 27 seconds.


I am not sure what this is all about, but I like it. Western fly-fishing goodness.


Warning: f-bombs galore here. But when you watch it, you’ll understand why.


Just a little closeup of a stunning Iceland brown trout getting ready to return to his lair.


Despite this video’s title, I think its Finnish director knows exactly lucky he is.


California steelheading doesn’t get the video treatment it deserves, so it’s always great to see some action from the Trinity.


I think there’s a Tom Petty joke to be made here. . .


Famed California angler Ken Hanley is gettin’ his carp on!


Here’s the trailer for what looks to be a great film about fathers and sons, as well as recapturing the past.


Here’s an excellent video of a trip to Andros Island in The Bahamas to chase bonefish and other stuff.
