Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival 05.08.20

Welcome to an all-new edition of the fishingsifu News Friday Fly-Fishing Film Festival, in which we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing videos available. This week, we serve up 14 videos, featuring some glorious scenes from exotic destinations, such as the Seychelles, British Columbia, Slovenia, and Norway. Today, angling travel isn’t really an option, so these films take us to the special places we can dream of visiting while we wait for things to open up again. There’s also some homegrown action, which reminds us what’s available out our back doors.

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.

If you’re hungry for more gorgeous films, we’ve created a page where you can find 10 “fishingsifu Presents” films, which tell amazing stories of the adventure and wonder in Nature. Click here to watch!
