Welcome to the another edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival! Each week, we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available and then serve them up for you to enjoy. This week, we’ve got thirteen glorious videos to help you get through this winter weekend, and the number of tropical salt clips will certainly help. But don’t worry, trout nuts, for there are plenty salmonids on display, as well.
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 Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. As of today, there are more than 1,250 great videos on the site!
We kick things off with the trailer for the latest film from RA Beattie. “NexGen” follows 12-year-old Jack as he experiences living in a fly fisherman’s house, witnesses the impact of fires on his home waters, and explores new waters on a road trip with his father and friends.
Here’s the third episode of the wonderful “Mosquitoes & Mayflies” series from Rolf Nylinder and featuring Håvard Stubø of Jazz & Fly Fishing.

Most videos by Gareth, a.k.a. Trout Hunting NZ, are a bit too talky for my taste, but this one cuts to the good stuff at about the 1:00 mark. Then it’s just pure trout joy.
Cool super-slo-mo clip of Capt. David Mangum and a tarpon in this trailer for “Bounce.”
A couple of students go in search of big bonefish at the northern end of Ambergris Cay in Belize.
The scenery in this video from Argentina’s southern Patagonia is glorious, and the fishing looks pretty good, as well.
