Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 12.06.13


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, nineteen more videos that will take you to amazing angling destinations. (Don’t worry: some of them are really short.)

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!


Beautiful stuff from the high country of Austria. This one had me from the opening throat singing. . . .


And, for completists, here’s part II.


Claremont Isles is a national park in Queensland, Australia, and these guys are catching some amazing saltwater species.


A brief and beautiful look at fly fishing for arctic char in Greenland.


Here’s a cool teaser for an upcoming film on restoring the steelhead and salmon fisheries on the Eel River in Northern California.


Some killer footage of fly-fishing for big tigerfish on the Barotse Floodplain of Zambia.


Regular F5 readers know that I love a good fishless video, and here’s a Black Friday adventure that fits the bill. Some sweet beard action, though.


This is a wonderful five-minute documentary about a guy who has made an annual pilgrimage to Yellowstone for thirty-five years.


Try to say it three times fast: Chokoloskee snook.


Cool stuff from Arkansas, featuring Jamie Rouse and David Burgher. (Mmmmmmmmmmmm—Burger.)


Underwater trout and tons of bugs, in and around the Madison River in July.


This is so cool: Carolina Perez spots a big golden dorado hammering bait, so she throws a popper at it. That’s a lot of fish for a 5-weight!


The Missouri is a huge river below Holter Dam, but here’s a look at small-stream fly fishing at the headwaters.


Here’s a 23-second love letter to the bonefish. It is also an ad for an Instagram account, which is something I’ve never seen before.


Great stuff from Norwegian Lapland, featuring some good brown trout, gray skies, and camaraderie.


Casting for snook and redfish around Naples, Florida looks like a helluva good time.


When you woke up this morning, did you think, “I’d love to see 30 seconds of fly fishing for European perch”? Me, neither. But I like it.


A group trip to the Finnmark region of northern Norway produces some gorgeous fish.


Finally, here’s a season wrap-up from Clint Kendall that offers plenty of eye-candy.

    I’d often wondered what if any trout fishing was there to be had in Australia. I see and hear tons about New Zealand trout fishing but rarely on Australia. Very cool and great footage.

    The Black Gnats video looked fun and their Black Friday experience was just like mine, fishless…and cool tunes too!

    Yellowstone, over thirty five years, is a real neat and honest documentary. The commentary blends perfectly with the visual and background music.

    Small stream fishing is always a blast! I would love to try it in Montana.

          Paul,

          Tasmania, our southernmost state in Australia, is an amazing trout fishery.

          I guess we like to do more fishing than filming, hence the lack of videos!
