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 offer eleven great productions, with a cool mix of down-home goodness and exotic destinations. From the Colorado Rockies to Finnmark, from southern Patagonia to southern California, and from the flats of Cuba to Labrador, there is tons to please the senses of any angler. And ain’t Rolf’s song pretty?
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!
