Welcome to the last edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival for 2018! Every week, we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available and then serve them up for you to enjoy. This week’s collection features an eclectic mix of species and locations, taking you from the jungles of Brazil to the north of Sweden and from the Florida coast to Green River, Wyoming. There’s something for everyone one to enjoy. Here’s to a great 2019 in fly-fishing video!
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!
