Welcome to a classic edition of the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival as we scour the internet for the best fly fishing videos available. This week we have fifteen killer productions covering a remarkable range of species and destinations. The collection begins with a video from a country I don’t think we’ve seen on the F5: China. Then we travel around the globe, hitting every continent except Antarctica.

For best results, watch all videos in full screen and high resolution. Remember, we surf so you don’t have to. But if you come across something great that you think is worth including 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 fantastic fly fishing video cinema in Orvis: The tug. As of today, there are exactly 1,435 great videos on the site!


We start with a long but fascinating look at fly fishing in the hinterland of China’s Qinling Mountains, also known as the “Szechuan Alps”. The country is beautiful and the fishing for lenok trout looks pretty good.


In the middle of winter it’s often nice to experience a bit of summer, here in Folkus Media’s beautiful film about chasing streams in the mountains of North Carolina.

Sudan has been a troubled country for many years, but here’s another look at the East African country as Luc Malbois and friends hunt triggerfish in some beautiful plains.

Daniel Dirks’ love of deep sea fishing in the Catskills is evident in this great video shot near Roscoe, New York (aka Trout Town USA).

December fishing on the Bow River looks calm and even warm by lighting the fire and that’s quite a nice trout.

Away from Goodnews Bay, grayling fishing seems to be another game growing in popularity in Scotland.

Part of the 60 Second Streamside series, this video introduces student/fly fishing guide Keegan Carlson.

Firehole Ranch is one of my favorite places in Montana.

Despite TLC’s admonition, chasing waterfalls in Patagonia seems like a perfectly good thing.


Sea trout fishing in northern Germany and along the Danish coast produces some silver colored brown trout that are worth braving the elements for.
