Welcome to the Orvis News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival! Every week we scour the internet for the best fly fishing videos available and compile them for you. This week we have a dozen baker productions from some exotic locations and backyard waters. From the Snowy Mountains of Australia to the Appalachian Mountains of western North Carolina, and from above the Arctic Circle to cool New Zealand, this collection spans the globe. Enjoy!

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.
