Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 11.29.13


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. We have a great selection this week, fifteen more videos that will 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!


The team from Hooké crosses the border to fish the famed Salmon River in Upstate New York.


This trailer from The Toad Fly features smallies, largemouths, and white bass feeding on schooling shad on top water flies.


Here’s a cool montage of just the good stuff from a season in the salt.


The boys from frontsidefly capture THAT moment. . .the one you don’t really want to talk about.


Here’s a cool trailer for a video that follows “rookie angler” Sarita Eliasson in New Zealand as she searches for her big brown trout.


This gorgeous video attempts to explain the magic of fly-fishing for steelhead in British Columbia.


This is the first of a series of videos, called “Colorado Stories,” featuring guide Parker Smith.


Here’s a cool look at fly-fishing in Thailand for golden mahseer. It looks like an amazing freestone-stream experience.


Australian permint from a kayak? Yes, please.


Sure, it’s just GoPro footage, but it offers a cool vantage of a striper angler’s 2013 season.


Check out some November 2013 fishing for Steelhead in Erie County’s Elk and Walnut Creeks, in a video was made in part for a project at Allegheny College.


Another great season wrap-up, this time from Fly Fishing Culture.


The second installment from the “Fall Run” series from Bloodknots offers a little bit of everything.


Here’s a great tribute to an angler from Australia whom we can all appreciate. I hope I’m as cool as Herby at 87.


Here’s the full version of “When the Winter Ends,” from which we shared a selection on Monday. At 17.5 minutes long, it’s a commitment, but it’s worth it.

    How freaking cool is the Mahseer fishing in Thailand??!? I’m planning a trip to Thailand in the next year, this will definitely be in the itinerary. Thanks, Phil.
