Classic Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival: 08.07.15


Written by: Jared Zissu

Welcome to our latest edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, featuring the best videos from around the world. This week, we take you on an adventure across the globe from Tigerfishing in Tanzania to Salmon fishing in Finland. The visuals on some of these videos are simply stunning, featuring some awesome drone shots, huge rainbows, and plenty of killer salt water action. You may get a few laughs along the way also!

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 now 780 great videos on the site!

See you next week with a fresh set of films!


The Hatch guys go “Into the Cauldron” for some killer salt water action off the coast of Catalina Island. I hope they stretched because that looks like some heavy lifting. . .


It’s awesome to see families uniting through the sport of fly fishing. After a decade spent apart these guys reconnect with their cousins to learn about their incredible lives as fishing guides.


Like kids on Christmas morning, these dudes look forward to the bull trout run every year. . . It looks like Santa delivered some good presents this year.


Who knew 5 seconds could be so entertaining . . .


Once again, Cortney shows us how he likes to test out his rods… Mouse pattern + Nighttime + Beard = Epic Cutthroat Trout . . . I’m down


Here is a beautiful summer day of fishing on a French Chalk Stream. Loving the reggae and drone footage from the guys at Caddis Productions. . .


Although I am not a “country boy”, I do enjoy a well filmed fly fishing video. Nice job by Kamil on this one. . .


Shane Thomas spends an evening fishing for some lunker carp in Eastern Idaho. I may have cranked up the volume for this jam also. . .


I am having a hard time determining whether this is a horror movie or a fishing video. Whatever it is its pretty entertaining. . . I will admit, the monster at the end is pretty scary.


Salmon fishing in Finland with the Effectfly guys. . . Looks like a successful trip


Helping young anglers catch their first fish is a great feeling! Here is a feel-good video, following a guide on his first year with Arizona Fly Fishing Adventures.


Interesting short video sponsored by Yeti. Not sure if I would bring my Yeti out to the stream, but hey that’s a MONSTER rainbow…. Maybe I should start bringing my cooler with me.


It’s so cool how you can pull a fishing video together using just an Iphone 5. . . And this came out really nice!


The Rochester brothers compete for bragging rights on an epic trip to Tanzania… The rules for the trip were simple… Whoever caught the biggest Tigerfish took home the prize…
