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 nine amazing videos, mostly from right here in the US, capturing the action in freshwater, warmwater and saltwater. Far-flung destinations include New Zealand and the Bahamas, where big fish are the order of the day. And don’t miss the final video where Tom explains his love for small streams.

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.
