Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 05.17.13


Written by: Phil Monahan

Welcome to a new edition of the OrvisNews.com Friday Film Festival, in which we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing footage available. 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 FFF, please post it in the comments below. And don’t forget to check in regularly at The Tug, the Orvis online video theatre. See you next week with a fresh set of films!



There’s no description for this video, so it’s difficult to know the relationship between the two anglers, but I think this will speak to all fathers and sons out there.


Getting after bonefish, triggerfish, and houndfish in The Bahamas with some of the guys from Skinny Water Culture.


Shown in sumptuous black & white, this video offers plenty of gorgeous scenery from the Sierras, along with beautiful fish. . .and a little dodgy net work.


The Humble Fisherman marks his return with this cool hike-in to some of finest mountain water that southern Alberta, Canada has to offer.


Here’s a video that explains why folks flock to the Bighorn in southeastern Montana. Nothing special: just great fishing.


A sweet video of saltwater fly fishing in Ascension bay, Mexico. You’ll enjoy the hand-lining for shark at the end.


Here’s a cool profile of a young woman who has made fly fishing a vital part of her life. It features some fine Bighorn River action, as well.


A short but sweet look at a float trip on the “B” section of the Green River below Flaming Gorge.


We’re in full spring mode here, but things are still plenty wintery in northern Norway on opening day.


Some hot Belize action from the Lowcountry Journal folks. I love when the woman is casting to the school of baby tarpon emerging from the mangroves.


This is a decidedly lo-res video, but it features plenty of solo fishing action, and the kinds of wildlife sightings not many of us experience. Shooting your own wilderness trip is difficult, and Dan Black does a nice job.


The Restigouche is a big river, and here anglers fish it from traditional canoes. Some great leaps from The Leaper on display here.


Cool species alert: bonito and houndfish on the fly.


This is a slab brown trout from some small, fast water on the Rio Traful in Argentina. Dude needs a bigger net.


The guys from Southern Culture on the Fly chase muskies in the Old Dominion and land some nice fish. Warning: Some very NSFW language here.


Americans don’t usually think of Italy as a fly-fishing destination, but this short documentary aims to change that.
