11 Sweet Fly Fishing Films

You're in for a treat: these are the best fly fishing videos we've shared over the last year.

We're wrapping up 2017 by sharing some of the best and most-viewed posts, videos, and stories from 2017 and sharing them in our Wide Open Spaces 12 Days of Top Stories countdown.

Today we're focusing on fly fishing videos, which are almost always mini movies in themselves. There's something about the beauty of fly fishing, and the species usually targeted, that makes it great for videos.

1. Start with a Bang (from a Pike)

You don't always think pike when you think fly fishing, but this was a memorable one from earlier this year.

2. Costa Rica in Focus

This video made us realize we need to book a flight...

3. It's All About Perseverance

There are many secrets of fly fishing. This is a big one.

4. Fly Fishing in Paradise

Is Cuba really paradise? We'll fish there then let you know...

5. Atlantic Salmon

What good is a yearly recap of fly videos without some salmon? This one is beautiful.

6. Goliath on the Fly

We were surprised to see this feat, and still barely believe it.

7. So Much More Than Salmon

There are definitely more than a few fly fishing salmon videos, but we've got something for everyone in this best of 2017 list.

8. Flying Mako

Our own writer helped get this video on YouTube, and we couldn't help but share.

9. Guadeloupe on the Radar

Staying with the theme of the last video, this great one features another one of our writers.

10. YETI and Orvis

If Orvis and YETI have made a bad video, we haven't seen it yet.

11. Last But Not Least

We said it back in July, but this really might be the best fly fishing video you see all year.

We hope you enjoyed these 12 Top Stories from 2017, and we're excited to see what 2018 has in store in the fly fishing world.

Until then, keep checking back on the countdown in the 12 Top Stories of 2017.
