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. For the second week in a row, we are featuring fourteen productions. There’s a definite trout focus here, but there’s also a little salt and a little warmwater. (I want to catch a Murray cod!) Destinations range from the Florida Keys to Colorado and from Australia to Swedish Lapland.
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 old, but awesome, Orvis fly-fishing video theater: The Tug. There are more than 1,250 great videos on the site!
We kick things off with this gorgeous video about a small stream in Missouri, where the rainbows are relicts of an earlier era of American trout fishing.

Winter fishing on the Colorado means fewer other anglers, some weather challenges, and some great brown trout.

This look at the Lake District of England is made better by Eve Mulholland’s awesome accent.
After doing these F5s for years, I’m pretty jaded, but the shot of wading boots punching through thin ice caught me by surprise. The rest of the video is pretty good, too.
David Johnson extols the virtues of chasing winter grayling in South Yorkshire, England. He makes a pretty good case.
This video about the Freshwater Trust Headwaters Council is also a killer profile of a steelhead angler.
