    Kelly Murray-Stoker | The Caddisfly Collective

    Rob was recently scrolling through Twitter and came across The Caddis Fly Collective account. He immediately e-mailed the Collective to invite] them on the podcast to discuss all things caddis. This week we are joined by Kelly Murray-Stoker, a PhD student at the University of Toronto in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. (Rob was expecting a Canadien accent on the other line). Her advisor on this and other projects is Dr. Shannon McCauley. We get the definitive answer to the effects of stacking stream rocks, the surprising locations caddis flies live and their roles in the enviromment, and we hear about the smallest caddis in the world.

    Andy Mill | Florida Keys Fly Fishing Tournaments

    Rob wanted an episode about the history and culture of fly fishing tournaments in the Florida Keys. There was a search for the most informed person to discuss this topic. The search led to the all time tarpon tournament champion, Andy Mill. Andy grew up in Colorado and was a champion down hill skier before hanging up his skis for a career in broadcasting and television. His passion for tarpon is so big it fills a book. Rob catches up with Andy as he prepares for Colorado elk season in Aspen.

    Iridescence In Nature Part 2 - Fly Tying

    Iridescence In Nature Part 2 - Fly Tying

    Part two of iridescence in nature is about natural and synthetic iridescent fly tying materials. This episode covers different iridescent terms used in fly tying, the history of synthetic iridescence, natural and synthetic materials, and the flies that use them. Some flies are tied with a minimal amount of flash while others may be completely made of flash. Are these flies meant to blend in or stand out in the water? Do fish care? What about anglers that stress over their flies and what goes into making them and why. All of this is covered in this episode.

    Iridescence In Nature Part 1

    Iridescence In Nature Part 1

    This episode is dedicated to iridescence in nature. Rob set out to explain why some fly tying materials reflect light and why others do not. This is the result. This phenomenon of color is not created by pigments, it is created by physical structures. No organism has an iridescent color and you will find out why. Rob explains the science behind iridescence and where you can see this gift from the natural world. Part 2 will be dedicated to synthetic iridescence and the use of iridescent fly tying material.

Love this Podcast

This is a great podcast, Rob is a very knowledgable angler and this guy is funny... Great Stories, Great Advice, Great Podcast... just one piece of advice Rob... "No one wants to hear you taking a drink dude, not a good sound"

Ilovefly ,

Great podcast.

An eclectic mix of travelogue, tactics and insights. Always varied and engaging. Would be great to hear more about lesser known species and tactics from your home waters. Listeners in the uk almost never fly fish for Carp or Shad and might find food for thought here.
